Pink Skin

Famous quotes containing the words pink and/or skin:

    Then, bringing me the joy we feel when wee see a work by our favorite painter which differs from any other that we know, or if we are led before a painting of which we have until then only seen a pencil sketch, if a musical piece heard only on the piano appears before us clothed in the colors of the orchestra, my grandfather called me the [hawthorn] hedge at Tansonville, saying, “You who are so fond of hawthorns, look at this pink thorn, isn’t it lovely?”
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    I remember their smooth skin,
    those newly delivered,
    the pink skin and the serious China-blue eyes.
    They came from a mysterious country
    without the pang of birth,
    born quietly and well.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
