Drunk

Famous quotes containing the word drunk:

    And Change with hurried hand has swept these scenes:
    The woods have fallen, across the meadow-lot
    The hunter’s trail and trap-path is forgot,
    And fire has drunk the swamps of evergreens;
    Yet for a moment let my fancy plant
    These autumn hills again: the wild dove’s haunt,
    The wild deer’s walk: in golden umbrage shut,
    Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (1821–1873)

    It is at a fair that man can be drunk forever on liquor, love, or fights; at a fair that your front pocket can be picked by a trotting horse looking for sugar, and your hind pocket by a thief looking for his fortune.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    The slime pool that the dog drowned in . . .
    A drunk vomiting up a teaspoon of bile . . .
    Washing the polio off the grapes when I was ten . . .
    A Harvard book bag in Rome . . .
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
