Famous quotes containing the words strange, electric, light and/or orchestra:

    The thought of you will constantly elevate my life; it will be something always above the horizon to behold, as when I look up at the evening star. I think I know your thoughts without seeing you, and as well here as in Concord. You are not at all strange to me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Flabby, bald, lobotomized,
    he drifted in a sheepish calm,
    where no agonizing reappraisal
    jarred his concentration of the electric chair—
    hanging like an oasis in his air
    of lost connections. . . .
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Its quick silver bell beating, beating
    And down the dark one ruby flare
    Pulsing out red light like an artery,
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    “Pop” Wyman ruled here with a firm but gentle hand; no drunken man was ever served at the bar; no married man was allowed to play at the tables; across the face of the large clock was written “Please Don’t Swear,” and over the orchestra appeared the gentle admonition, “Don’t Shoot the Pianist—He’s Doing His Damndest.”
