Famous quotes containing the words pipe and/or steam:
“I am dead against arts being self-expression. I see an inherent failure in any story which fails to detach itself from the authordetach itself in the sense that a well-blown soap-bubble detaches itself from the bowl of the blowers pipe and spherically takes off into the air as a new, whole, pure, iridescent world. Whereas the ill-blown bubble, as children know, timidly adheres to the bowls lip, then either bursts or sinks flatly back again.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
“Time has an undertaking establishment on every block and drives his coffin nails faster than the steam riveters rivet or the stenographers type or the tickers tick out fours and eights and dollar signs and ciphers.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
