Famous quotes containing the word implacable:

    There’s precious little to say between day and dark,
    Perhaps a few words on the implacable will
    Of time sailing like a magic barque
    Or something as fine for the amenities....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    We, who have already borne on the road to Paradise the lives of the best among us, want a difficult, erect, implacable Paradise; a Paradise where one can never rest and which has, beside the threshold of the gates, angels with swords.
    J.A. (José Antonio)

    The idiot greens the meadow with his eyes,
    The meadow creeps implacable and still;
    A dog barks, the hammock swings, he lies.
    One two three the cows bulge on the hill.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
