Famous quotes containing the words ice and/or water:

    A young person is a person with nothing to learn
    One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
    It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
    day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
    And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
    without running a nail in its feet. . . .
    Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
    Writing that the young are ones’ should not
    undermine the self-confidence of which.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
