Famous quotes containing the word stone:

    It is of stone.
    A rosy stone that takes
    a glowing tone of softness
    only because behind it the sky is a doubtful, a doubting
    night gray.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    At first your mother said . . . why me! why me!
    But she got over that. Now she enjoys
    her dull daily care and her hectic bravery.
    You do not love anyone. She is not growing a boy;
    she is enlarging a stone to wear around her neck.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Why was I not made of stone like these?
    Sonya Levien (1895–1960)
