Famous quotes containing the word seal:

    We have progressively improved into a less spiritual species of tenderness—but the seal is not yet fixed though the wax is preparing for the impression.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Don’t forget that even our most obscene vices nearly always bear the seal of sullen greatness.
    Gesualdo Bufalino (b. 1920)

    The denial of our duty to act in this case is a denial of our right to act; and if we have no right to act, then may we well be termed “the white slaves of the North,” for like our brethren in bonds, we must seal our lips in silence and despair.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)
