Famous quotes containing the word sank:

    The place became full of a watchful intentness now; for when other things sank brooding to sleep the heath appeared slowly to awake and listen. Every night its Titanic form seemed to await something; but it had waited thus, unmoved, during so many centuries, through the crises of so many things, that it could only be imagined to await one last crisis—the final overthrow.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    We took one look round,
    Then sank out of sight like trolls underground....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Then leaf subsides to leaf.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
