Famous quotes containing the word singular:

    There is in my nature, methinks, a singular yearning toward all wildness.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is singular to look round upon a country where the dreams of sages, smiled at as utopian, seem distinctly realized, a people voluntarily submitting to laws of their own imposing, with arms in their hands respecting the voice of a government which their breath created and which their breath could in a moment destroy!
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    The singular passion
    Abides its object and consumes desire
    In the circling shadow of its appetite.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
