Famous quotes containing the word whirl:

    Dizzily down the abyss he wheels—
    So fell Darius. Upon his crown,
    In the midst of the barn-yard he came down,
    In a wonderful whirl of tangled strings,
    Broken braces and broken springs,
    Broken tail and broken wings,
    John Townsend Trowbridge (1827–1916)

    Rub a half potato on your wart
    and wrap it in a damp cloth. Close
    your eyes and whirl three times and throw.
    Then bury rag and spud exactly where they fall.
    Richard Hugo (1923–1982)

    Children are incurable romantics. Brimful of romance and tragedy, we whirl through childhood hopelessly in love with our parents. In our epic imagination, we love and are loved with a passion so natural and innocent we may never know its like as adults.
    Roger Gould (20th century)
