Famous quotes containing the words dress and/or full:

    Let your dress fall down your shoulder,
    come touch a copy of you....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    It is comforting when one has a sorrow to lie in the warmth of one’s bed and there, abandoning all effort and all resistance, to bury even one’s head under the cover, giving one’s self up to it completely, moaning like branches in the autumn wind. But there is still a better bed, full of divine odors. It is our sweet, our profound, our impenetrable friendship.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
