Silk Thread

Famous quotes containing the words silk and/or thread:

    Her fortune, too, lies there,
    Converted into cool hard steel
    And right red velvet lining;
    While over her tan impassivity
    Shot silk is shining.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    One sought not absolute truth. One sought only a spool on which to wind the thread of history without breaking it.
