Famous quotes containing the word lies:

    I stand amid the dust o’ the mounded years—
    My mangled youth lies dead beneath the heap,
    My days have crackled and gone up in smoke,
    Have puffed and burst as sun-starts on a stream.
    Francis Thompson (1859–1907)

    And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
    On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the
    floor;
    And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted—nevermore!
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the softness of the sky, the outline of these trees at this very minute lose the illusory meaning with which we had clothed them, henceforth more remote than a lost paradise ... that denseness and that strangeness of the world is absurd.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
