Open

Famous quotes containing the word open:

    A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer. If you are searching for anything in particular you don’t find it, but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.
    —J.M. (James Matthew)

    What is reality?
    I am a plaster doll; I pose
    with eyes that cut open without landfall or nightfall
    upon some shellacked and grinning person,
    eyes that open, blue, steel, and close.
    Am I approximately an I. Magnin transplant?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Betray, kind husband, Thy spouse to our sights,
    And let mine amorous soul court Thy mild Dove,
    Who is most true and pleasing to Thee then
    When she is embraced and open to most men.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
