Famous quotes containing the word vanish:

    Do I terrify?—

    The nose, the eye pits, the full set of teeth?

    Will vanish in a day.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)

    Women have face-lifts in a society in which women without them appear to vanish from sight.
    Naomi Wolf (b. 1962)

    Coming out, all the way out, is offered more and more as the political solution to our oppression. The argument goes that, if people could see just how many of us there are, some in very important places, the negative stereotype would vanish overnight. ...It is far more realistic to suppose that, if the tenth of the population that is gay became visible tomorrow, the panic of the majority of people would inspire repressive legislation of a sort that would shock even the pessimists among us.
    Jane Rule (b. 1931)
