Famous quotes containing the word spinning:

    “Reason is an exception in me, too,” said Zarathustra: “Chaos and necessity and spinning stars—that is also the rule in the wisest world.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philtre, it is also the leisurely act of drinking.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    I, a spinning man,
    Glory also this star, bird
    Roared, sea born, man torn, blood blest.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
