Famous quotes containing the word blast:

    ... able to
    Mend measles, nag noses, blast blisters
    And all day waste wordful girls
    And war-boys, and all day
    Say “Oh God!”
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    You know, if this is Venus, or some other strange planet, we’re liable to run into some high-domed characters with green blood in their veins who’ll blast at us with their atomic death rayguns, and there we’ll be with these—these poor old-fashioned shootin’ irons.
    Edward L. Bernds (b. 1911)

    What if there’s nothing up there at the top?
    Where are the captains that govern mankind?
    What tears down a tree that has nothing within it?
    A blast of wind, O a marching wind,
    March wind, and any old tune,
    March march and how does it run.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
