Famous quotes containing the word wick:

    There lives within the very flame of love
    A kind of wick or snuff that will abate it.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Writing is to descend like a miner to the depths of the mine with a lamp on your forehead, a light whose dubious brightness falsifies everything, whose wick is in permanent danger of explosion, whose blinking illumination in the coal dust exhausts and corrodes your eyes.
    Blaise Cendrars (1887–1961)

    A revolutionary poem will not tell you who or when to kill, what and when to burn, or even how to theorize. It reminds you ... where and when and how you are living and might live—it is a wick of desire.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
