Famous quotes containing the word shot:

    But this we know, the obstacle that checked
    And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
    Further than target ever showed or shone.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Before I was shot, I always thought that I was more half-there than all-there—I always suspected that I was watching TV instead of living life.... Right when I was being shot and ever since, I knew that I was watching television.
    Andy Warhol (1928–1987)
