Famous quotes containing the word shell:

    How then can we account for the persistence of the myth that inside the empty nest lives a shattered and depressed shell of a woman—a woman in constant pain because her children no longer live under her roof? Is it possible that a notion so pervasive is, in fact, just a myth?
    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)

    Billy: You dropped some shell in there.
    Ted: It’s all right. Makes it crunchier that way. You like French toast crunchy, don’t you?
    Robert Benton (b. 1932)

    I was even more surprised at the power of the waves, exhibited on this shattered fragment, than I had been at the sight of the smaller fragments before. The largest timbers and iron braces were broken superfluously, and I saw that no material could withstand the power of the waves; that iron must go to pieces in such a case, and an iron vessel would be cracked up like an egg- shell on the rocks.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
