Single Father and Wanting To Join The Marines

Famous quotes containing the words join, single, father and/or wanting:

    Old hands soil, it seems, whatever they caress, but they too have their beauty when they are joined in prayer. Young hands were made for caresses and the sheathing of love. It is a pity to make them join too soon.

    Ye taught my lips a single speech,
    And a thousand silences.
