Famous quotes containing the word abyss:

    The connection between our knowledge and the abyss of being is still real, and the explication must be not less magnificent.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

This is the chthonian matrix from which we rose. We have an evolutionary revulsion from slime, our site of biologic origins. Every month, it is woman’s fate to face the abyss of time and being, the abyss which is herself.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
