Famous quotes containing the word curved:

    By constant dripping, water hollows stone,
    A signet-ring from use alone grows thin,
    And the curved plowshare by soft earth is worn.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery, like the idle, curved tunnels of leaf miners on the face of a leaf. We must somehow take a wider view, look at the whole landscape, really see it, and describe what’s going on here. Then we can at least wail the right question into the swaddling band of darkness, or, if it comes to that, choir the proper praise.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)

    They are not flat surfaces
    Having curved outlines.
    They are round
    Tapering toward the top.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
