Famous quotes containing the words list of, superheroes, list and/or black:

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    The truth is, most of our alleged superheroes make meals, make beds, make ends meet, make mistakes, make amends, make love, make up, and mostly make do.
    Marianne E. Neifert (20th century)

    Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women’s issues.
    Charlotte Bunch (b. 1944)

    The monotonous dead clog me up and there is only
    black done in black that oozes from the strongbox.
    I must disembowel it and then set the heart, the legs,
    of two who were one upon a large woodpile
    and ignite, as I was once ignited, and let it whirl
    into flame....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
