Famous quotes containing the words rocket and/or german:

    Along a parabola life like a rocket flies,
    Mainly in darkness, now and then on a rainbow.
    Andrei Voznesensky (b. 1933)

    Boys hide in lunging cubes
    Crouching to explode,
    Beyond the Atlantic skies,
    With cheerful cries
    Their barking tubes
    Upon the German toad.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
