White Spots

Famous quotes containing the words white and/or spots:

    No more the white refulgent streets,
    Never the dry hollows of the mind
    Shall he in fine courtesy walk
    Again, for death is not unkind.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Physical pleasure is a sensual experience no different from pure seeing or the pure sensation with which a fine fruit fills the tongue; it is a great unending experience, which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and the glory of all knowing. And not our acceptance of it is bad; the bad thing is that most people misuse and squander this experience and apply it as a stimulant at the tired spots of their lives and as distraction instead of a rallying toward exalted moments.
    Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926)
