Famous quotes containing the word grim:

    It is even more grim and wild than you had anticipated, a damp and intricate wilderness, in the spring everywhere wet and miry. The aspect of the country, indeed, is universally stern and savage, excepting the distant views of the forest from hills, and the lake prospects, which are mild and civilizing in a degree.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    —But he, grim grinning King,
    Who caitiffs scorns, and doth the blest surprise,
    Late having deck’d with beauty’s rose his tomb,
    Disdains to crop a weed, and will not come.
    William Drummond, of Hawthornden (1585–1649)

    Tattoo-shops, consulates, grim head-scarfed wives;
    And out beyond its mortgaged half-built edges
    Fast-shadowed wheat-fields, running high as hedges,
    Isolate villages, where removed lives
    Loneliness clarifies. Here silence stands
    Like heat. Here leaves unnoticed thicken,
    Hidden weeds flower....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
