Famous quotes containing the word string:

    As I came home through the woods with my string of fish, trailing my pole, it being now quite dark, I caught a glimpse of a woodchuck stealing across my path, and felt a strange thrill of savage delight, and was strongly tempted to seize and devour him raw; not that I was hungry then, except for that wildness which he represented.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... looped with the creep of varying light,
    Monkey-brown, fish-grey, a string of infected circles
    Loitering like bullies, about to coagulate....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    First you find a little thread, a little thread leads you to a string, and the string leads you to a rope. And from the rope you hang by the ... neck.
    —A.I. (Albert Isaac)
