Usage examples for Roundness

We threw the lasso-but not successfully, owing to the bushy hair about the head and the roundness of the hump of the neck.
"My Attainment of the Pole"
Frederick A. Cook
It was a portrait of Lady Jane, a full-length too, and wonderfully like; there was more complexion, and perhaps more roundness in the figure than her present appearance would justify; but if any thing was gained in brilliancy, it was certainly lost in point of expression; and I infinitely preferred her pale, but beautifully fair countenance, to the rosy cheek of the picture; the figure was faultless; the same easy grace, the result of perfect symmetry and refinement together, which only one in a thousand of even handsome girls possess, was pourtrayed to the life.
"The Confessions of Harry Lorrequer, Complete"
Charles James Lever (1806-1872)
The rich and varied material of their robes, the pretty chapeaux, from which peep forth such coquettish glances, the modest assurance-for their self-possession amounts precisely to that-and the ease and elegance of their carriage, give them attractions we might seek for in vain in the women of other countries, however superior these last may be in beauty of complexion or roundness of contour, for which French women in general are not remarkable.
"The Idler in France"
Marguerite Gardiner

Famous quotes with Roundness

  • The roundness of life's design may be a sign that there is a presence beyond ourselves.
    Wally Lamb
  • The maiden---pure and without stain--lay sleeping on the small couch that occupied one corner of the closet. Her fair limbs were enshrouded in the light folds of a night-robe, and she lay in an attitude of perfect repose, one glowing cheek resting upon her uncovered arm, while over the other, waved the loosened curls of her glossy hair. The parting lips disclosed her teeth, white as ivory, while her youthful bosom came heaving up from the folds of her night-robe, like a billow that trembles for a moment in the moonlight, and then is suddenly lost to view. She lay there in all the ripening beauty of maidenhood, the light falling gently over her young limbs, their outlines marked by the easy folds of her robe, resembling in their roundness and richness of proportion, the swelling fulness of the rose-bud that needs but another beam of light, to open it into its perfect bloom.
    George Lippard
