Famous quotes containing the words wing and/or air:

    The broken pillar of the wing jags from the clotted shoulder,
    The wing trails like a banner in defeat,
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    There is something about poverty that smells like death. Dead dreams dropping off the heart like leaves in a dry season and rotting around the feet; impulses smothered too long in the fetid air of underground caves. The soul lives in a sickly air. People can be slave-ships in shoes.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
