Golden Flashes

Famous quotes containing the words golden and/or flashes:

    In marble halls as white as milk,
    Lined with a skin as soft as silk,
    Within a fountain crystal-clear,
    A golden apple doth appear.
    No doors there are to this stronghold,
    Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.
    Mother Goose (fl. 17th–18th century. In marble walls as white as milk (Riddle: An Egg)

    One of the laudable by-products of the Freudian quackery is the discovery that lying, in most cases, is involuntary and inevitable—that the liar can no more avoid it than he can avoid blinking his eyes when a light flashes or jumping when a bomb goes off behind him.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
