Famous quotes containing the word hurl:

    Here I swear, and as I break my oath may ... eternity blast me, here I swear that never will I forgive Christianity! It is the only point on which I allow myself to encourage revenge.... Oh, how I wish I were the Antichrist, that it were mine to crush the Demon; to hurl him to his native Hell never to rise again—I expect to gratify some of this insatiable feeling in Poetry.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Lock in! Be alert, my acrobat
    and I will be soft wood and you the nail
    and we will make fiery ovens for Jack Sprat
    and you will hurl yourself into my tiny jail
    and we will take a supper together and that
    will be that.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    O ill-starred wench,
    Pale as thy smock! When we shall meet at compt,
    This look of thine will hurl my soul from heaven,
    And fiends will snatch at it. Cold, cold, my girl,
    Even like thy chastity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
