Famous quotes containing the word timid:

    Morality for the novelist is expressed not so much in the choice of subject matter as in the plot of the narrative, which is perhaps why in our morally bewildered time novelists have often been timid about plot.
    Jane Rule (b. 1931)

    [The] taste [of the French] is too timid to be true taste—or is but half taste.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    This night has been so strange that it seemed
    As if the hair stood up on my head.
    From going-down of the sun I have dreamed
    That women laughing, or timid or wild,
    In rustle of lace or silken stuff,
    Climbed up my creaking stair.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
