Famous quotes containing the words held and/or trials:

    I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer morning,
    How you settled your head athwart my hips and gently turn’d over
    upon me,
    And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone, and plunged your tongue to my bare-stript heart,
    And reach’d till you felt my beard, and reach’d till you held my
    feet.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    All middle-class novels are about the trials of three, all upper-class novels about mass fornication, all revolutionary novels about a bad man turned good by a tractor.
    Christina Stead (1902–1983)
