Famous quotes containing the word pitch:

    It is beyond a doubt that during the sixteenth century, and the years immediately preceding and following it, poisoning had been brought to a pitch of perfection which remains unknown to modern chemistry, but which is indisputably proved by history. Italy, the cradle of modern science, was at that time, the inventor and mistress of these secrets, many of which are lost.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)

    I dream that I have brought
    To such a pitch my thought
    That coming time can say,
    “He shadowed in a glass
    What thing her body was.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I saw the Arab map.
    It resembled a mare shuffling on,
    dragging its history like saddlebags,
    nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.
    Adonis [Ali Ahmed Said] (b. 1930)
