Famous quotes containing the words wrench and/or box:

    That is what we must make people feel... the catch in the throat, the wrench to steady the nerves, the determination to carry on.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    We are little airy creatures,
    All of different voice and features:
    One of us in glass is set,
    One of us you’ll find in jet,
    T’other you may see in tin,
    And the fourth a box within;
    If the fifth you should pursue,
    It can never fly from you.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
