Famous quotes containing the word pit:

    The great snake lies ever half awake, at the bottom of the pit of the world, curled
    In folds of himself until he awakens in hunger and moving his head to right and to left prepares for his hour to devour.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    It’s well
    If God who holds you to the pit of hell,
    Much as one holds a spider, will destroy,
    Baffle and dissipate your soul.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    I respect the ways of old folks, but the blood of a rooster or a goat cannot turn the seasons, change the course of the clouds and fill them up with water like bladders. The other night, at the ceremony for Legba, I danced and sang my fill: I am a black man, no? and I enjoyed it like a true Negro should. When the drums beat, I feel it in the pit of my stomach, I feel the itch in my hips and up and down my legs, I have got to join the party. But that is all.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)
