Famous quotes containing the word drunk:
“And Change with hurried hand has swept these scenes:
The woods have fallen, across the meadow-lot
The hunters 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 doves haunt,
The wild deers walk: in golden umbrage shut,”
—Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (18211873)
“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 (19281974)
