Aperture Stop

Famous quotes containing the words aperture and/or stop:

    Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders’ sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away ... is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)

    And midway
    We meet the disappointed, returning ones, without its
    Being able to stop us in the headlong night
    Toward the nothing of the coast.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
