Famous quotes containing the word lay:

    At this season I seldom had a visitor. When the snow lay deepest no wanderer ventured near my house for a week or fortnight at a time, but there I lived as snug as a meadow mouse.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If ever a man and his wife, or a man and his mistress, who pass nights as well as days together, absolutely lay aside all good breeding, their intimacy will soon degenerate into a coarse familiarity, infallibly productive of contempt or disgust.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    We lay long in the immense tide
    Of shade and shadowy desire
    And saw the dusk assail the wall,
    The black surge, mounting, crash the stone!
    Companion of this lust, we fall,
    I said lest we should die alone.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
