Famous quotes containing the word crack:

    Spread outward. Crack the round dome. Break through.
    Have liberty not as the air within a grave
    Or down a well. Breathe freedom, oh, my native,
    In the space of horizons that neither love nor hate.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    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)
