Polish Army

Famous quotes containing the words polish and/or army:

    You will have to polish up the stars
    with Bab-o and find a new God
    as the earth empties out
    into the gnarled hands of the old redeemer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    This fantastic state of mind, of a humanity that has outrun its ideas, is matched by a political scene in the grotesque style, with Salvation Army methods, hallelujahs and bell-ringing and dervishlike repetition of monotonous catchwords, until everybody foams at the mouth. Fanaticism turns into a means of salvation, enthusiasm into epileptic ecstacy, politics becomes an opiate for the masses, a proletarian eschatology; and reason veils her face.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
