Famous quotes containing the word mixed:

    Memory is a wonderfully useful tool, and without it judgement does its work with difficulty; it is entirely lacking in me.... Now, the more I distrust my memory, the more confused it becomes. It serves me better by chance encounter; I have to solicit it nonchalantly. For if I press it, it is stunned; and once it has begun to totter, the more I probe it, the more it gets mixed up and embarrassed. It serves me at its own time, not at mine.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    To brew up an adult, it seems that some leftover childhood must be mixed in; a little unfinished business from the past periodically intrudes on our adult life, confusing our relationships and disturbing our sense of self.
    Roger Gould (20th century)

    Love sits enthroned in Clara’s eyes,
    The Graces play her lips around,
    And in her cheeks the tendrest dyes
    Of lilly mixed with rose are found.
    Where charms so irresistless throng
    What mortal heart can try resistance?
    But ah! her nose is two feet long,
    And bids our passions keep their distance.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
