Famous quotes containing the word garbage:

    To be an editor, as I was.
    Then to lie here close by the river over the place
    Where the sewage flows from the village,
    And the empty cans and garbage are dumped,
    And abortions are hidden.
    Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)

    But could a dream send up through onion fumes
    Its white and violet, fight with fried potatoes
    And yesterday’s garbage ripening in the hall,
    Flutter, or sing an aria down these rooms
    Even if we were willing to let it in,
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
