Famous quotes containing the word recovers:

    But nothing is better than a truth which appears not to have the semblance of truth. There is always something incomprehensible about the great heroic deeds performed by humanity because they rise so far beyond the mediocre measure of mere mortals; but it is always only because of the incredible feats that human beings have accomplished that humanity recovers its faith in itself.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    The candle
    Gulps and recovers its small altitude,

    Its yellows heaten.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
