Variable White

Famous quotes containing the words variable and/or white:

    Walked forth to ease my pain
    Along the shore of silver streaming Thames,
    Whose rutty bank, the which his river hems,
    Was painted all with variable flowers,
    Edmund Spenser (1552?–1599)

    Why do we then shun death with anxious strife?
    If Light can thus deceive, wherefore not Life?
