It isn't necessary to be socialists in order to love Pertini. Whatever he says or does, smells of cleanliness, of loyalty and of sincerity.
To be resign'd when ills betide,
Patient when favours are deni'd,
And pleas'd with favours given, —
Dear Chloe, this is wisdom's part;
This is that incense of the heart
Whose fragrance smells to heaven.
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.john cheever
Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells And sights, before the dark of reason grows.
The painting of sounds, noises and smells calls for: 1. Reds, rrrrreds, the rrrrrreddest rrrrrrreds that shouuuuuuut. 2.Greens, that can never be greener, greeeeeeeeeeeens that screeeeeeam, yellows, as violent as can be: polenta yellows, saffron yellows, brass yellows.carlo carrà
The past is the only dead thing that smells sweet, The only sweet thing that is not also fleet.

"Systems for owning smells will open a rich treasure trove of opportunity for those interested in capitalizing on it."thomas frey
I don’t need them to tell me what it feels like to be poor … I already know how this feels, how it smells and how it tastes! When I talk to them … I want them to tell me about their hopes and aspirations, about their dreams… about the road ahead and how they imagine it will shape up out in front of them to make the dreaming and hoping come true. I ask them about assistance, about the health, and about their families near or far.manuel rivera-ortiz
It doesn't smell of sulphur any more. No, it smells of something else. It smells of hope, and you have to have hope in your heart.hugo chávez
I don't like the definition 'war correspondent'. It is history, not journalism, that has condemned the Middle East to war. I think 'war correspondent' smells a bit, reeks of false romanticism: it has too much of the whiff of Victorian reporters who would view battles from hilltops in the company of ladies, immune to suffering, only occasionally glancing towards the distant pop-pop of cannon fire.robert fisk
This book is gaudy like a gilded cauliflower which smells so bad after a good hot water soaking, like hot chocolate sweetened with sugar beet / incompatibles blended incongruously to no purpose.Peter Greenaway

Dwelling beside a body of water is tonic for the weary psyche. Sea smells, sea birds, seawrack, sands - alternately cool, warm, moist and dry - a taste of brine and the presence of the rocking, slopping bluegraygreen spit-flecked waters, has the effect of rinsing the emotions, bathing the outlook, bleaching the conscience.roger zelazny
What have we here? a man or a fish? dead or alive? A fish: he smells like a fish; a very ancient and fish-like smell.william shakespeare
The rose of all the world is not for me. I want for my part Only the little white rose of Scotland That smells sharp and sweet - and breaks the heart.hugh macdiarmid
What's this that myrrh doth still smell in thy kiss, And that with thee no other odour is? 'Tis doubt, my Postumus, he that doth smell So sweetly always, smells not very well.
[Breadmaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world's sweetest smells... there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel. that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.
“Tell me about the city, then.” The master shrugged. “It’s crowded. It smells. There are lots of things to buy.”
This flower that smells of honey and the sea, White laurustine, seems in my hand to be A white star made of memory long ago Lit in the heaven of dear times dead to me.algernon charles swinburne
Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend.Lucy Liu
What airs outblown from ferny dells And clover-bloom and sweet brier smells.john greenleaf whittier
