Mirrors

Famous quotes containing the word mirrors:

    Our age is very cheap and intelligible. Unroof any house, and you shall find it. The well-being consists in having a sufficiency of coffee and toast, with a daily newspaper; a well glazed parlor, with marbles, mirrors and centre-table; and the excitement of a few parties and a few rides in a year.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Poets are the hierophants of an unapprehended inspiration; the mirrors of the gigantic shadows which futurity casts upon the present; the words which express what they understand not; the trumpets which sing to battle and feel not what they inspire; the influence which is moved not, but moves. Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    My own voice spoke to people,
    anyone, friends, strangers on the street, saying,
    “I am Mr. Rabbit.” The flesh itself had become mad
    and at three mirrors this was confirmed.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
