Famous quotes containing the word girl:
“I do not know if you remember the tale of the girl who saves the ship under mutiny by sitting on the powder barrel with her lighted torch ... and all the time knowing that it is empty?

—Isak Dinesen [Karen Blixen] (18851962)

Across a dazzling field of snow,
And there is nothing in me that resists.
Once it would not be so....”
