Famous quotes containing the word pillar:

    In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)

    The LORD went in front of them in a pillar of cloud by day, to lead them along the way, and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light, so that they might travel by day and by night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 13:21,22.

    Nights, I squat in the cornucopia
    Of your left ear, out of the wind,

    Counting the red stars and those of plum-color.
    The sun rises under the pillar of your tongue.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
