Famous quotes containing the words edge and/or front:

    My Turn is the distilled bathwater of Mrs. Reagan’s life. It is for the most part sweetish, with a tart edge of rebuke, but disappointingly free of dirt or particulate matter of any kind.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    In front of that sinner of a husband,
    she rattled off
    only those words
    that her pack of vile-tongued girlfriends
    taught her
    as fast as she could,
    and after,
    began to behave
    at the Love-god’s beck and call.
    It’s indescribable,
    this natural, charming
    path of love,
    paved with the gems
    of inexperience.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
