slant quotes- 8 of
Tell all the truth but tell it slant,
Success in circuit lies,
There's a certain Slant of light,
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes--
I saw on the slant hill a putrid lamb,
Propped with daisies.
The dead fed you
Amid the slant stones of graveyards.
Columbus's doom-burdened caravels
Slant to the shore, and all their seamen land.
The truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind.
When it comes, the Landscape listens--
Shadows--hold their breath--
None may teach it--Any--
'Tis the Seal Despair--
