Famous quotes containing the word niche:

    You’re neither unnatural, nor abominable, nor mad; you’re as much a part of what people call nature as anyone else; only you’re unexplained as yet—you’ve not got your niche in creation.
    Radclyffe Hall (1883–1943)

    They sat together halfway up a cliff
    In a small niche let into it, the girl
    Brightly, as if a star played on the place,
    Paul darkly, like her shadow.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    You’re neither unnatural, nor abominable, nor mad; you’re as much a part of what people call nature as anyone else; only you’re unexplained as yet—you’ve not got your niche in creation.
    Radclyffe Hall (1883–1943)
