Famous quotes containing the words sweet and/or sixteen:

    Those graceful acts,
    Those thousand decencies, that daily flow
    From all her words and actions, mixed with love
    And sweet compliance, which declare unfeigned
    Union of mind, or in us both one soul.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Perhaps having built a barricade when you’re sixteen provides you with a sort of safety rail. If you’ve once taken part in building one, even inadvertently, doesn’t its usually latent image reappear like a warning signal whenever you’re tempted to join the police, or support any manifestation of Law and Order?
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)
