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)

    Another hand thy sword shall wield,
    Another hand the standard wave,
    Till from the trumpet’s mouth is pealed
    The blast of triumph o’er thy grave.
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    I care not by what measure you end the war. If you allow one single germ, one single seed of slavery to remain in the soil of America, whatever may be your object, depend upon it, as true as effect follows cause, that germ will spring up, that noxious weed will thrive, and again stifle the growth, wither the leaves, blast the flowers, and poison the fair fruits of freedom. Slavery and freedom cannot exist together.
    Ernestine L. Rose (1810–1892)
