Famous quotes containing the words lies and/or pain:

    Innocence: “I am only stepping on your face because it lies in my path.”
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    In the small circle of pain within the skull
    You still shall tramp and tread one endless round
    Of thought, to justify your action to yourselves,
    Weaving a fiction which unravels as you weave,
    Pacing forever in the hell of make-believe
    Which never is belief: this is your fate on earth
    And we must think no further of you.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
