Famous quotes containing the words stitch and/or knotted:

    Oh demon within,
    I am afraid and seldom put my hand up
    to my mouth and stitch it up
    covering you, smothering you
    from the public voyeury eyes
    of my typewriter keys.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    If all hearts were open and all desires known—as they would be if people showed their souls—how many gapings, sighings, clenched fists, knotted brows, broad grins, and red eyes should we see in the market-place!
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
