Sand

Famous quotes containing the word sand:

    She had more sand in her than any girl I ever see: in my opinion she was just full of sand. It sounds like flattery, but it ain’t no flattery.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    But the twelve lie in the sand by the dry rock
    Seeing nothing—the sand, the tree, rocks
    Without number—and turn away the face
    To the mind’s briefer and more desert place.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Mix salt and sand, and it shall puzzle the wisest of men, with his mere natural appliances, to separate all the grains of sand from all the grains of salt; but a shower of rain will effect the same object in ten minutes.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
