Famous quotes containing the words loaded and/or spring:
“A bizarre sensation pervades a relationship of pretense. No truth seems true. A simple mornings greeting and response appear loaded with innuendo and fraught with implications.... Each nicety becomes more sterile and each withdrawal more permanent.”
—Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
“I swear to keep the dead upon my mind,/Disdain for all time to be overglad./Among spring flowers, under summer trees./By chilling autumn waters, in the frosts/Of supercilious winterall my days/Ill have as mentors those reproving ghosts.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
