Air

Famous quotes containing the word air:

    To be worst,
    The lowest and most dejected thing of fortune,
    Stands still in esperance, lives not in fear.
    The lamentable change is from the best;
    The worst returns to laughter. Welcome, then,
    Thou unsubstantial air that I embrace!
    The wretch that thou hast blown unto the worst
    Owes nothing to thy blasts.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    “With your air indifferent and imperious
    At a stroke our mad poetics to confute—”
    And—”Are we then so serious?”
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Mothers of America
    let your kids go to the movies!
    get them out of the house so they won’t know what you’re up to
    it’s true that fresh air is good for the body
    but what about the soul
    that grows in darkness, embossed by silvery images
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)
