Famous quotes containing the words blast and/or furnace:

    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)

    A sumptuous dwelling the rich man hath.
    And dainty is his repast;
    But remember that luxury’s prodigal hand
    Keeps the furnace of toil in blast.
    Mary Elizabeth Hewitt (b.1818)
