Famous quotes containing the word drop:

    I have been oranging and fat,
    carrot colored, gaped at,
    allowing my cracked o’s to drop on the sea
    near Venice and Mombasa.
    Over Maine I have rested.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Next week Reagan will probably announce that American scientists have discovered that the entire U.S. agricultural surplus can be compacted into a giant tomato one thousand miles across, which will be suspended above the Kremlin from a cluster of U.S. satellites flying in geosynchronous orbit.

    Alexander Cockburn (b. 1941)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
