Famous quotes containing the word crack:

    I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You must be wise, in order to sniff out and weigh these mighty books, and swift in the hunt and brave in the battle; then, by careful reading and frequent reflection, crack open the bone and suck out the substantific marrow.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    You waves, though you dance by my feet like children at play,
    Though you glow and you glance, though you purr and you dart;
    In the Junes that were warmer than these are, the waves were more gay,
    When I was a boy with never a crack in my heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
