Famous quotes containing the word move:

    You’re gonna take the rap and play along. You’re gonna make every exact move I tell you. If you don’t, I’ll kill you. And I’ll promise you one thing, it won’t be quick. I’ll break you first. You won’t be able to answer a telephone or open a door without thinking “This is it.” And when it comes, it still won’t be quick. And it won’t be pretty.
    Geoffrey Homes (1902–1977)

    The idea was to prove at every foot of the way up that you were one of the elected and anointed ones who had the right stuff and could move higher and higher and even—ultimately, God willing, one day—that you might be able to join that special few at the very top, that elite who had the capacity to bring tears to men’s eyes, the very Brotherhood of the Right Stuff itself.
    Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)

    A letter with it
    discloses, in its words and between them,
    a life opening, fearful, fearless,
    thousand-eyed, a field
    of sparks that move swiftly
    in darkness....
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
