Strong Pale

Famous quotes containing the words strong and/or pale:

    The mind cannot support moral chaos for long. Men are under as strong a compulsion to invent an ethical setting for their behavior as spiders are to weave themselves webs.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    We know not what it is, dear, this sleep so deep and still;
    The folded hands, the awful calm, the cheek so pale and chill;
    The lids that will not lift again, though we may call and call;
    The strange white solitude of peace that settles over all.
    Mary Mapes Dodge (1831–1905)
