Underneath the shifting appearances of the world as perceived by our unreliable senses, is there, or is there not, a bedrock of objective reality?
His iron coat all overgrown with rust, Was underneath envelope'd with gold, Whose glistering gloss darkened with filthy dust, Well yet appeare'd, to have been of old A work of rich entail, and curious mold, Woven with antics and wild imagery.Edmund Spenser
My work has the abstraction underneath it all now & what I deliberately set out to do down here, for this is the perfect realistic abstraction in landscape.marsden hartley
I'm dead on the surface, But I am screaming underneath.Coldplay
As for the grass, it grewas scant as hair in leprosythin dried blades pricked the mud which underneath looked kneaded up with blood. One stiff blind horse, his every bone a-stare, stood stupefied.Robert Browning
The declared meaning of a spoken sentence is only its overcoat, and the real meaning lies underneath its scarves and buttons.Peter Carey
"I am but a draper in a room of wool, looking at the patterns, feeling like a fool. I'm going to take my fabric, stretch it to the seams, I want to find what's woven underneath these tailored dreams"ralston bowles
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen. On the farm the weather was the great fact, and men's affairs went on underneath it, as the streams creep under the ice. But in Black Hawk the scene of human life was spread out shrunken and pinched, frozen down to the bare stalk.willa cather
When you sincerely embrace Jesus as your Saviour, and rest on His atonement for pardon, when you look to Him for daily direction, lean on Him for support, and are joined to Him in heart union, then you may be sure that you have got the everlasting rock bed underneath you.theodore l. cuyler
The Lord descended from aboveAnd bow’d the heavens high;And underneath his feet he castThe darkness of the sky.On cherubs and on cherubimsFull royally he rode;And on the wings of all the windsCame flying all abroad.
There are certain common privileges of a writer, the benefit whereof, I hope, there will be no reason to doubt; particularly, that where I am not understood, it shall be concluded, that something very useful and profound is couched underneath; and again, that whatever word or sentence is printed in a different character, shall be judged to contain something extraordinary either or wit of sublime.jonathan swift
A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread—and ThouBeside me singing in the Wilderness—Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!omar khayyám
No need to repeat the blasphemous comments which everyone who had known Gran'pa Comstock made on that last sentence. But it is worth pointing out that the chunk of granite on which it was inscribed weighed close on five tons and was quite certainly put there with the intention, though not the conscious intention, of making sure that Gran'pa Comstock shouldn't get up from underneath it. If you want to know what a dead man's relatives really think of him, a good rough test is the weight of his tombstone.george orwell
This election, this presidential election, I think has underscored underneath it several times. We want change. And it's not change in the White House so much, as change in Washington.mitt romney
It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.Batman
A tunnel underneath the sea from Calais straight to Dover, Sir, The squeamish folks may cross by land from shore to shore, With sluices made to drown the French, if e'er they would come over, Sir, Has long been talk'd of, till at length 'tis thought a monstrous bore.
underneath the Arches, I dream my dreams away, underneath the Arches, On cobble-stones I lay.Bud stage name of Robert Winthrop Flanagan
Beneath is spread like a green sea The waveless plain of Lombardy, Bounded by the vaporous air, Islanded by cities fair; underneath Day's azure eyes, Ocean's nursling, Venice lies, A peopled labyrinth of walls, Amphitrite's destined halls.Percy Bysshe Shelley
For the record,"You'll Always Be a Part Of Me" no matter what you do,For the record,can't nobody say I didn't give "My All" to you,For the record,I told you "underneath The Stars" that you "Belong" to me,For the record,It's obvious that we just "Can't Let Go" of us "Honey".mariah carey
We remember the refrain from the Phillippines: ‘underneath the starry flag/Civilize him with a Krag /And then get underway for home sweet home.’ But you have to civilize him first, and how you do that with the ragheads is the problem.jeff cooper
underneath all the arches of Scripture history, throughout the whole grand temple of the Scriptures, these two voices ever echo, man is ruined, man is redeemed.cyrus david foss
Listen! O, listen! Here ever hum the golden bees underneath full-blossoined trees, At once with glowing fruit and flowers crowned.james russell lowell
