Spark Ignition Engines

Famous quotes containing the words spark and/or engines:

    The applause and the favour of our fellow-men
    Fan even a spark of genius to a flame.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    America is like one of those old-fashioned six-cylinder truck engines that can be missing two sparkplugs and have a broken flywheel and have a crankshaft that’s 5000 millimeters off fitting properly, and two bad ball-bearings, and still runs. We’re in that kind of situation. We can have substantial parts of the population committing suicide, and still run and look fairly good.
    Thomas McGuane (b. 1939)
