Nerve Gas House

Famous quotes containing the words nerve, gas and/or house:

    Social questions are too sectional, too topical, too temporal to move a man to the mighty effort which is needed to produce great poetry. Prison reform may nerve Charles Reade to produce an effective and businesslike prose melodrama; but it could never produce Hamlet, Faust, or Peer Gynt.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Droning a drowsy syncopated tune,
    Rocking back and forth to a mellow croon,
    I heard a Negro play.

    Down on Lenox Avenue the other night
    By the pale dull pallor of an old gas light
    Langston Hughes (1902–1967)

    I have wished a bird would fly away,
    And not sing by my house all day....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
