Famous quotes containing the word stained:

    I think I could . . .
    if I’d been different, or wise, or calm,
    I think I could have charmed the table,
    the stained dish or the hand of the dealer.
    But it’s done.
    It’s all used up.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    For often at Church I’ve seen the stained high glass
    Pour out the Virgin and Saints, twist and untwist
    The mortal youth of Christ astride an ass.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
