Yellow Impurity

Famous quotes containing the words yellow and/or impurity:

    The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes,
    The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    We are all such accidents. We do not make up history and culture. We simply appear, not by our own choice. We make what we can of our condition with the means available. We must accept the mixture as we find it—the impurity of it, the tragedy of it, the hope of it.
    Saul Bellow (b. 1915)
