Famous quotes containing the word flash:

    I think that in the swift white mind’s brain
    Neurons flash images of a world
    Undead and deathless, burgeoning again.
    I think that Spring will come this way, unfurled.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    New ideas come into this world somewhat like falling meteors, with a flash and an explosion, and perhaps somebody’s castle-roof perforated.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

If there’s a message there, I don’t think I want to hear it.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
