Famous quotes containing the word pitted:

    The place became crater on each side,
    sank down to its first skull,
    shedding forests, oceans, dried
    bones and neons, as it fell through
    time like a forgotten pitted stone.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The Thirties dreamed white marble and slipstream chrome, immortal crystal and burnished bronze, but the rockets on the Gernsback pulps had fallen on London in the dead of night, screaming. After the war, everyone had a car—no wings for it—and the promised superhighway to drive it down, so that the sky itself darkened, and the fumes ate the marble and pitted the miracle crystal.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
