Armored

Famous quotes containing the word armored:

    O mud
    For watermelons gutted to the crust,
    Mud for the mole-tide harbor, mud for mouse,

    A year and a day to wind and tide; the dust
    Is on this skipping heart that shakes my house,
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Another armored animal—scale
    lapping scale with spruce-cone regularity until they
    form the uninterrupted central
    tail-row!

    The armored cars of dreams, contrived to let us do so many a dangerous thing.
