Famous quotes containing the word kitchen:

    On the kitchen wall a flash
    of shadow:
    swift pilgrimage
    of pigeons, a spiral
    celebration of air, of sky-deserts.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    And you’re too fired up to go to sleep, you sit at the kitchen table. It’s really late, it’s really quiet, you’re tired. Don’t wanna go to bed, though. Going to bed means this was the day. This Feb. 12, this Aug. 3, this Nov. 20 is over and you’re tired and you made some money but it didn’t happen, nothing happened. You got through it and a whole day of your life is over. And all it is—is time to go to bed.
    Claudia Shear, U.S. author. New York Times, p. A21 (September 29, 1993)

    Helen, Helen,
    the kitchen is your dog
    and you pat it
    and love it
    and keep it clean.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
