High Speed Line

Famous quotes containing the words high, speed and/or line:

    There, do not start,
    child, nor toss about;
    only calm and high pride
    can help your hurt:
    fate tries all alike.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    There was such speed in her little body,
    And such lightness in her footfall,
    It is no wonder her brown study
    Astonishes us all.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    Experience has taught me, when I am shaving of a morning, to keep watch over my thoughts, because, if a line of poetry strays into my memory, my skin bristles so that the razor ceases to act.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
