Burn Bags

Famous quotes containing the words burn and/or bags:

    All things are flowing, even those that seem immovable. The adamant is always passing into smoke. The plants imbibe the materials which they want from the air and the ground. They burn, that is, exhale and decompose their own bodies into the air and earth again. The animal burns, or undergoes the like perpetual consumption. The earth burns, the mountains burn and decompose, slower, but incessantly.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Some dead undid their bushy jaws,
    And bags of blood let out their flies;
    He had by heart the Christ-cross-row of death.
    Sleep navigates the tides of time;
    The dry Sargasso of the tomb
    Gives up its dead to such a working sea....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
