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)

    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)

    Fame’s pillar here, at last, we set,
    Out-during marble, brass, or jet,
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
