Famous quotes containing the word strand:

    You went on with your dying.
    Nothing could stop you. Not your son. Not your daughter
    Who fed you and made you into a child again.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)

    Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
    There is no happiness like mine.
    I have been eating poetry.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)

    Dust rises from the main road and old Délira is stooping in front of her hut. She doesn’t look up, she softly shakes her head, her headkerchief all askew, letting out a strand of grey hair powdered, it appears, with the same dust pouring through her fingers like a rosary of misery. She repeats, “we will all die”, and she calls on the good Lord.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)
