Stones

Famous quotes containing the word stones:

    Red lips are not so red As the stained stones kissed by the English dead.
    Wilfred Owen (1893–1918)

    The writing of a poem is like a child throwing stones into a mineshaft. You compose first, then you listen for the reverberation.
    James Fenton (b. 1949)

    The real pleasure of being Mick Jagger was in having everything but being tempted by nothing ... a smouldering ill will which silk clothes, fine food, wine, women, and every conceivable physical pampering somehow aggravated ... a drained and languorous, exquisitely photogenic ennui.
    —Anonymous “Chronicler.” Quoted in Philip Norman, The Life and Good Times of the Rolling Stones (1989)
