Famous quotes containing the word mixed:

    All nature is a temple where the alive
    Pillars breathe often a tremor of mixed words;
    Man wanders in a forest of accords
    That peer familiarly from each ogive.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Mrs. Finney: Can’t we have some peace in this house, even on New Year’s Eve?

    Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909–1993)

    The land of shadows wilt thou trace
    And look nor know each other’s face
    The present mixed with reasons gone
    And past and present all as one
    Say maiden can thy life be led
    To join the living with the dead
    Then trace thy footsteps on with me
    We’re wed to one eternity
    John Clare (1793–1864)
