Pit Stops

Famous quotes containing the words pit and/or stops:

    A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and in the black, stinking fume thereof nearest resembling the horrible Stygian smoke of the pit that is bottomless.
    James I of England, James VI of Scotland (1566–1625)

    Unquiet wanderer
    Draw the Glasnevin coverlet anew
    About your head till the dust stops your ear,
    The time for you to taste of that salt breath
    And listen at the corners has not come;
    You had enough of sorrow before death—
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
