Famous quotes containing the word assail:

    A vocation makes us unthinking; that is its greatest blessing. For it is a bulwark behind which we are permitted to withdraw when commonplace doubts and cares assail us.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    We lay long in the immense tide
    Of shade and shadowy desire
    And saw the dusk assail the wall,
    The black surge, mounting, crash the stone!
    Companion of this lust, we fall,
    I said lest we should die alone.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
