Famous quotes containing the word motion:

    Too many Broadway actors in motion pictures lost their grip on success—had a feeling that none of it had ever happened on that sun-drenched coast, that the coast itself did not exist, there was no California. It had dropped away like a hasty dream and nothing could ever have been like the things they thought they remembered.
    Mae West (1892–1980)

    Two children, all alone and no one by,
    Holding their tattered frocks, thro’an airy maze
    Of motion lightly threaded with nimble feet
    Dance sedately; face to face they gaze,
    Their eyes shining, grave with a perfect pleasure.
    Laurence Binyon (1869–1943)

    subways, rivered under streets
    and rivers . . . in the car
    the overtone of motion
    underground, the monotone
    of motion is the sound
    of other faces, also underground—
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
