Famous quotes containing the word air:

    Speak the speech ... trippingly on the tongue; but if you mouth it ... I had as lief the town crier had spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and as I may say the whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I moved like a lobster,
    slower and slower.
    The air was tiny.
    The air would not do.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
