Famous quotes containing the word startling:

    The love of their country is with them only a mode of flattering its master; as soon as they think that master can no longer hear, they speak of everything with a frankness which is the more startling because those who listen to it become responsible.
    Marquis De Custine (1790–1857)

    It was always startling to discover so plain a trail of civilized man there. I remember that I was strangely affected, when we were returning, by the sight of a ring-bolt well drilled into a rock, and fastened with lead, at the head of this solitary Ambejijis Lake.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    He’s not out
    seeing a sight but the rock
    crystal thing to see—the startling El Greco
    brimming with inner light—that
    covets nothing that it has let go. This then you may know
    as the hero.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
