Famous quotes containing the word pitch:

    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)

    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.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    I can’t earn my own living. I could never make anything turn into money. It’s like making fires. A careful assortment of paper, shavings, faggots and kindling nicely tipped with pitch will never light for me. I have never been present when a cigarette butt, extinct, thrown into a damp and isolated spot, started a conflagration in the California woods.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)
