Pale, mournful flower, that hidest in shade Mid dewy damps and murky glade, With moss and mould, Why dost thou hang thy ghastly head, So sad and cold?
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man Cold when he is only sad.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If the estimate of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs is correct, then Russia has lost the Cold war in western Europe.walter lippmann
I presume that to the uninitiated the formulae will appear Cold and cheerless; but let it be remembered that, like other mathematical formulae, they find their origin in the divine source of all geometry. Whether I shall have the satisfaction of taking part in their exposition, or whether that will remain for some more profound expositor, will be seen in the future.benjamin peirce
A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a Cold night.marilyn monroe
Praisethe invisible sun burning beyondthe white Cold sky, giving uslight and the chimney's shadow.Denise Levertov
Mars is too Cold, Venus is too hot, Earth is just right.Andrew Ingersoll
I will on thee as on a comet look, A comet, the sad world's ill-boding book; Thy light as luctual and stain'd with woes I'll judge, where penal flames sit mixt and close. But though some think thou shin'st but to restrain Bold storms, and simply dost attend on rain; Yet I know well, and so our sins require, Thou dost but court Cold rain, till rain turns fire.Henry Vaughan
I love the joy of mountains Wandering free with no concerns Every day I find food for this old body There’s leisure for thinking, nothing to do Often I carry an ancient book Sometimes I climb a rock pavilion To look down a thousand foot precipice Overhead are swirling clouds A Cold moon chilly Cold My body feels like a flying cranehan shan
The threat of mutually assured destruction worked for the United States during the Cold War because it had proved its willingness to drop nuclear bombs on enemy cities at the end of World War II. It might work less well for Israel, because the Israeli Air Force has never deliberately targeted a large civilian population center, and its leaders have said its morality would not permit it do so.alan dershowitz
I think the Cold War works as a great analogy or simile for different kinds of conflict . It's funny, when you look back at it, it's one of the last times that the boundaries were clear. Now, as we see on 'Homeland,' there are no clear boundaries and enemies.
The Cold reaches of the universe must not become the new area of an even colder war.
Lifeless in appearance, sluggish dazed spring approaches They enter the new world naked, Cold, uncertain of all save that they enter.william carlos williams
Deliver me from your Cold phlegmatic preachers, politicians, friends, lovers and husbands.Abigail Adams
England's not a bad country. It's just a mean, Cold, ugly, divided, tired, clapped-out, post-imperial, post-industrial slag-heap covered in polystyrene hamburger cartons.Margaret Drabble
When illusions are over, when the distractions of sense, the vagaries of fancy, and the tumults of passion have dissolved even before the body is Cold, which once they so thronged and agitated, the soul merges into intellect, intellect into conscience, conscience into the unbroken, awful solitude of its own personal accountability; and though the inhabitants of the universe were within the spirit's ken, this personal accountability is as strictly alone and unshared, as if no being were throughout immensity but the spirit and its God.henry giles
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering Cold iron.horace mann
O cool glad pasture; living tree, tall corn,Great cliff, or languid sloping sand, Cold sea,Waves: river curving; you, eternal flowers,Give me content, while I can think of you:Give me your living breath!Back to your rampart, Death!harold monro
On John Edwards, U.S. Senator from North Carolina: "The stump speech of pretty-boy Senator John Edwards, which I've heard often enough to be able to mouth along with him, has room for everything, including vivid, wrenching portraits of despair: 'Tonight somewhere in America a ten-year-old little girl will go to bed hungry, hoping and praying that tomorrow will not be as Cold as today because she doesn't have the coat to keep her warm.' You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be doubled up in laughter at that line.mark steyn
Lifeless in appearance, sluggish dazed spring approaches — They enter the new world naked, Cold, uncertain of all save that they enter. All about them The Cold, familiar wind — Now the grass, tomorrow the stiff curl of wildcarrot leaf One by one objects are defined — It quickens: clarity, outline of leaf But now the stark dignity of entrance — Still, the profound change has come upon them: rooted, they grip down and begin to awaken.william carlos williams
Can storied urn, or animated bust Back to its mansion call the fleeting breath? Can Honour's voice provoke the silent dust, Or Flatt'ry soothe the dull Cold ear of Death?thomas gray
I love the joy of mountains Wandering free with no concerns Every day I find food for this old body There’s leisure for thinking, nothing to do Often I carry an ancient book Sometimes I climb a rock pavilion To look down a thousand foot precipice Overhead are swirling clouds A Cold moon chilly Cold My body feels like a flying crane
"Life is a minestrone Served up with parmesan cheese Death is a Cold lasagne Suspended in deep freeze"
But hear thee, Gratiano; Thou art too wild, too rude and bold of voice; Parts that become thee happily enough, And in such eyes as ours appear not faults; But where thou art not known, why, there they show Something too liberal. Pray thee, take pain To allay with some Cold drops of modesty, Thy skipping spirit, lest through thy wild behavior, I be misconstrued in the place I go to, And lose my hopes.
