Famous quotes containing the word pitch:

    Though I have locked my gate on them

    Their robbery by night....

    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    It is beyond a doubt that during the sixteenth century, and the years immediately preceding and following it, poisoning had been brought to a pitch of perfection which remains unknown to modern chemistry, but which is indisputably proved by history. Italy, the cradle of modern science, was at that time, the inventor and mistress of these secrets, many of which are lost.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)
