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
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
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
Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls. Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in; Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in, Dresses in which to do nothing at all; Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall; All of them different in color and shape. Silk, muslin, and lace, velvet, satin, and crape, Brocade and broadcloth, and other material, Quite as expensive and much more ethereal.william allen butler
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
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
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
As a young child Audrey Carsons wanted to be writers because writers were rich and famous. They lounged around Singapore and Rangoon smoking opium in a yellow pongee Silk suit. They sniffed cocaine in Mayfair and they penetrated forbidden swamps with a faithful native boy and lived in the native quarter of Tangier smoking hashish and languidly caressing a pet gazelle.William S. Burroughs
The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of Silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane flieshan shan

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
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 .
An aspirant possessed of rAjasic bhakti puts a tilak on his forehead and a necklace of holy rudrAksha beads , interspersed with gold ones, around his neck. At worship he wears a Silk cloth.
The parable of a man greedy of this world is the parable of the Silk worm: the more it winds the thread round itself the farther it becomes from salvation, until it dies of grief.
Richer, than doing nothing for a bribe; Prouder, than rustling in unpaid-for Silk.
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 .
