Famous quotes containing the words tear and/or slap:

    His form is fixed in my eyes,
    his touch in my limbs,
    his whispers in my ear,
    and his heart is kept in my heart.
    So what can Fate tear in two?
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    I am the wound and the knife!
    I am the slap and the cheek!
    I am the limbs and the rack,
    And the victim and the executioner!
    I am the vampire of my own heart.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)
