Famous quotes containing the words works and/or gas:

    Great works constructed there in nature’s spite
    For scholars and for poets after us,
    Thoughts long knitted into a single thought,
    A dance-like glory that those walls begot.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Legs lagged like drains, slippers soft as fungus,
    The gas and grate, the old cold sour grey bed.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
