White Phosphorus Matches

Famous quotes containing the words white and/or matches:

    His white head hung out like a carpet bag
    and his crotch turned blue as a blood blister,
    and Godfather death, as it is written,
    put a finger on his back
    for the big blackout,
    the big no.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    But, most of all, the Great Society is not a safe harbor, a resting place, a final objective, a finished work. It is a challenge constantly renewed, beckoning us toward a destiny where the meaning of our lives matches the marvelous products of our labor.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
