Famous quotes containing the word pitch:

    I saw the Arab map.
    It resembled a mare shuffling on,
    dragging its history like saddlebags,
    nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.
    Adonis [Ali Ahmed Said] (b. 1930)

    I can’t earn my own living. I could never make anything turn into money. It’s like making fires. A careful assortment of paper, shavings, faggots and kindling nicely tipped with pitch will never light for me. I have never been present when a cigarette butt, extinct, thrown into a damp and isolated spot, started a conflagration in the California woods.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    Though I have locked my gate on them
    I pity all the young,
    I know what devil’s trade they learn
    From those they live among,
    Their drink, their pitch and toss by day,
    Their robbery by night....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
