Molten Ice

Famous quotes containing the words molten and/or ice:

    You do me wrong to take me out o’ th’ grave:
    Thou art a soul in bliss, but I am bound
    Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears
    Do scald like molten lead.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The awaited scream rises,
    the shattering
    of glass and the cracking
    of bone
    a polar tumult as when
    black ice booms....
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
