Famous quotes containing the word attachment:

    My attachment has neither the blindness of the beginning, nor the microscopic accuracy of the close of such liaisons.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Men are more evanescent than pictures, yet one sorrows for lost friends, and pictures are my friends. I have none others. I am never long enough with men to attach myself to them; and whatever feelings of attachment I have are to material things.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
