Famous quotes containing the word glow:

    While glow the heavens with the last steps of day,
    Far, through their rosy depths, dost thou pursue
    Thy solitary way!
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    Sensuality reconciles us with the human race. The misanthropy of the old is due in large part to the fading of the magic glow of desire.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any more—the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to perils, to love, to vain effort—to death; the triumphant conviction of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and expires—and expires, too soon, too soon—before life itself.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)
