Red Hulk

Famous quotes containing the words red and/or hulk:

    The red of her lower lip
    kissed off by her lover at night
    can be seen at dawn,
    reflected in the eyes
    of other wives.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    To anybody who can hold the Present at its worth without being inappreciative of the Past, it may be forgiven, if to such an one the solitary old hulk at Portsmouth, Nelson’s Victory, seems to float there, not alone as the decaying monument of a fame incorruptible, but also as a poetic approach, softened by its picturesqueness, to the Monitors and yet mightier hulls of the European ironclads.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
