Famous quotes containing the word closely:

    But his kiss was so sweet, and so closely he pressed,
    That I languished and pined till I granted the rest.
    John Gay (1685–1732)

    It had been cold since December. Snow fell, first,
    At New Year and, from then until April, lay
    On everything. Now it had melted, leaving
    The gray grass like a pallet, closely pressed;
    And dirt. The wind blew in the empty place.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Our failings sometimes bind us to one another as closely as could virtue itself.
    Luc, Marquis de Vauvenargues (1715–1747)
