Famous quotes containing the words quick and/or pitch:

    If the quick fire of youth light not your mind,
    You are no maiden, but a monument.
    When you are dead, you should be such a one
    As you are now; for you are cold and stern.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    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)
