Famous quotes containing the word strand:

    You went on with your dying.
    Nothing could stop you. Not your son. Not your daughter
    Who fed you and made you into a child again.
    —Mark Strand (b. 1934)

    The annals of this voracious beach! who could write them, unless it were a shipwrecked sailor? How many who have seen it have seen it only in the midst of danger and distress, the last strip of earth which their mortal eyes beheld. Think of the amount of suffering which a single strand had witnessed! The ancients would have represented it as a sea-monster with open jaws, more terrible than Scylla and Charybdis.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Dust rises from the main road and old Délira is stooping in front of her hut. She doesn’t look up, she softly shakes her head, her headkerchief all askew, letting out a strand of grey hair powdered, it appears, with the same dust pouring through her fingers like a rosary of misery. She repeats, “we will all die”, and she calls on the good Lord.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)
