Heavy Artillery

Famous quotes containing the words heavy and/or artillery:

    The heavy sensual shoulders, the thighs, the blood-born flesh
    and earth turning into color, rocks into their crystals,
    water to sound, fire to form: life flickers
    uncounted into the supple arms of love.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    Another success is the post-office, with its educating energy augmented by cheapness and guarded by a certain religious sentiment in mankind; so that the power of a wafer or a drop of wax or gluten to guard a letter, as it flies over sea over land and comes to its address as if a battalion of artillery brought it, I look upon as a fine meter of civilization.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
