Wind Waves

Famous quotes containing the words wind and/or waves:

    The wind attendant on the solstices
    Blows on the shutters of the metropoles,
    Stirring no poet in his sleep, and tolls
    The trand ideas of the villages.
    The malady of the quotidian. . . .
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Each day a few more lies eat into the seed with which we are born, little institutional lies from the print of newspapers, the shock waves of television, and the sentimental cheats of the movie screen.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
