Waves

Famous quotes containing the word waves:

    Achilles had strapped the wind
    About his ankles,
    He brushed rocks
    The waves had flung.
    He ran in armour.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    With these I would be.
    And with water: the waves coming forward, without cessation,
    The waves, altered by sand-bars, beds of kelp, miscellaneous
    driftwood,
    Topped by cross-winds, tugged at by sinuous undercurrents
    The tide rustling in, sliding between the ridges of stone,
    The tongues of water, creeping in, quietly.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    Dr. Scofield’s equipment, which you have just seen, radiated waves direct to Professor Houghland’s laboratory. When these waves came in contact with those the professor’s equipment was radiating, they created the interstellar frequency, which is the death ray.
    Joseph O’Donnell, and Clifford Sanforth. Arthur Perry (Bela Lugosi)
