Famous quotes containing the word torch:

    Time grows dim. Time that was so long
    grows short, time, all goggle-eyed,
    wiggling her skirts, singing her torch song,
    giving the boys a buzz and a ride,
    that Nazi Mama with her beer and sauerkraut.
    Time, old gal of mine, will soon dim out.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
