Famous quotes containing the word bare:

    Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man’s smudge and shares man’s smell: the soil
    Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    Of all the characters I have known, perhaps Walden wears best, and best preserves its purity. Many men have been likened to it, but few deserve that honor. Though the woodchoppers have laid bare first this shore and then that, and the Irish have built their sties by it, and the railroad has infringed on its border, and the ice-men have skimmed it once, it is itself unchanged, the same water which my youthful eyes fell on; all the change is in me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    the bare eyes were before me
    And the hissing hair,
    Held up at a window, seen through a door.
    The stiff bald eyes, the serpents on the forehead
    Formed in the air.
    Louise Bogan (1897–1970)
