Separation isn't time or distance it's the bridge between us finer than silk thread sharper than swords
Just as my fingers on these keys Make music, so the self-same sounds On my spirit make a music, too. Music is feeling, then, not a sound; And thus it is that what I feel, Here in this room, desiring you, Thinking of your blue-shadowed Silk, Is music.wallace stevens
Let Sporus tremble'What? that thing of Silk, Sporus, that mere white curd of ass's milk? Satire or sense, alas! can Sporus feel? Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?Alexander Pope
For the first time, I wasn’t embarrassed by the look of beauty, of elegance, because when you see someone who has only one rag as their property, but it happens to be beautiful and pink and Silk, beauty doesn’t have to be separated.. ..I have always said that you shouldn’t have biases, you shouldn’t have prejudices. But before that (his trip to India around 1975, fh) I’d never been able to use purple, because it was too beautiful.Robert Rauschenberg
I Tiresias, old man with wrinkled dugs Perceived the scene, and foretold the rest I too awaited the expected guest. He, the young man carbuncular, arrives, A small house agent's clerk, with one bold stare, One of the low on whom assurance sits As a Silk hat on a Bradford millionaire.
I'll come no more behind your scenes,David: for the Silk stockings and white bosoms of your actresses excite my amorous propensities.
Our style should be as a skein of Silk, to be carried and found by the right thread, not ravelled and perplexed; then all is a knot, a heap.Ben Jonson
A Silk suit, which cost memuchmoney, and Ipray God to make me able to pay for it.Samuel Pepys
Although the Great Leader told us that we have to let the people eat rice with meat soup, wear Silk clothes and live in a tiled roof house, we have not accomplished his will.… We have already reached the status of a strong country in the military field, let alone politics and ideology, but there are still quite a number of things lacking in people's lives. I am trying to implement his will by solving these problems.kim jong-il
Thus use your frog...Put your hook through his mouth, and out at his gills;...and then with a fine needle and Silk sew the upper part of his leg, with only one stitch, to the arming-wire of your hook; or tie the frog's leg, above the upper joint, to the armed-wire; and in so doing use him as though you loved him.Izaak Walton
Headmaster: Clad in the magnificent white Silk robes of an Arab prince, with in his belt the short curved, gold sword of the Ashraf descendants of the Prophet, he hoped to pass unnoticed through London. Alas, he was mistaken. "Who am I?" he would cry despairingly. "You are Lawrence of Arabia" passers-by would stop him and say, "And I claim my five pounds."Alan Bennett
You could weave Silk from pig bristles before you could make a man anything but a man.robert jordan
Honor? Maybe they're letting him sleep on Silk, but a prisoner is still a prisoner.robert jordan
And you prate of the wealth of nations, as if it were bought and sold, The wealth of nations is men, not Silk and cotton and gold.richard hovey
All these innovations are being done without in any way tampering with the purity and uncompromising quality that has characterised Mysore Silk fabrics - including saris for decades.
This is one element I always missed in a Mysore Silk saree. So, I had to go for Kancheepuram, Peddapuram [saris] or Banaras when I needed to wear a very heavy-looking sari. Now, I have bought one and even gifted another to my sister-in-law as part of her wedding trousseau.Nandana Roy
Thus use your frog: * * * put your hook, I mean the arming wire, through his mouth, and out at his gills, and then with a fine needle and Silk sow the upper part of his leg with only one stitch to the arming wire of your hook, or tie the frog's leg above the upper joint to the armed wire; and in so doing use him as though you loved him.
And ye sail walk in Silk attire, And siller hae to spare, Gin ye'll consent to be his bride, Nor think o' Donald mair.
Writing is hard work. Even when you start with the raw ingredients – a mad family, a sense of humour, talent…it’s hard work. But you do get to sit around in Silk pyjamas all day.
And you prate of the wealth of nations, as if it were bought and sold, The wealth of nations is men, not Silk and cotton and gold .
Do not despise it when it is naked . Do not honor it in church with Silk vestments while outside it is naked and numb with cold .
