Famous quotes containing the word shaft:

    “It’s hard to tell you how I managed it.
    When I saw the shaft had me by the coat,
    I didn’t try too long to pull away,
    Or fumble for my knife to cut away,
    I just embraced the shaft and rode it out....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The subterranean miner that works in us all, how can one tell whither leads his shaft by the ever shifting, muffled sound of his pick?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Why should not our whole life and its scenery be actually thus fair and distinct? All our lives want a suitable background. They should at least, like the life of the anchorite, be as impressive to behold as objects in a desert, a broken shaft or crumbling mound against a limitless horizon.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
