Famous quotes containing the word string:

    As I came home through the woods with my string of fish, trailing my pole, it being now quite dark, I caught a glimpse of a woodchuck stealing across my path, and felt a strange thrill of savage delight, and was strongly tempted to seize and devour him raw; not that I was hungry then, except for that wildness which he represented.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The string quartet plays for itself,
    gently, gently, sleeves and waxy bows.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    ... looped with the creep of varying light,
    Monkey-brown, fish-grey, a string of infected circles
    Loitering like bullies, about to coagulate....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
