Famous quotes containing the word dim:

    Gradually I regained my usual composure. I reread Pale Fire more carefully. I liked it better when expecting less. And what was that? What was that dim distant music, those vestiges of color in the air? Here and there I discovered in it and especially, especially in the invaluable variants, echoes and spangles of my mind, a long ripplewake of my glory.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    He sowed our spawn in the world’s dim dawn,
    And I know that it shall not die;
    Langdon Smith (1858–1908)

    This girl borrowed no dim light of a star
    Nor ever night held her in a dark mesh,
    A slim bloom she stood of the first larkspur,
    A wind of spring fluttered in her white flesh.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
