Famous quotes containing the word cell:

    I turn and turn in my cell like a fly that doesn’t know where to die.
    Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937)

    She that but little patience knew,
    From childhood on, had now so much
    A grey gull lost its fear and flew
    Down to her cell and there alit,
    And there endured her fingers’ touch
    And from her fingers ate its bit.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
