What is Patrick Victor Martindale White?

Famous quotes containing the words white and/or victor:

    The silence is death.
    It comes each day with its shock
    to sit on my shoulder, a white bird,
    and peck at the black eyes
    and the vibrating red muscle
    of my mouth.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    ... in any war a victory means another war, and yet another, until some day inevitably the tides turn, and the victor is the vanquished, and the circle reverses itself, but remains nevertheless a circle.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)
