Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or slam:

    The allurement that women hold out to men is precisely the allurement that Cape Hatteras holds out to sailors: they are enormously dangerous and hence enormously fascinating. To the average man, doomed to some banal drudgery all his life long, they offer the only grand hazard that he ever encounters. Take them away, and his existence would be as flat and secure as that of a moo-cow.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    to slam the door on all the days she’ll stay the same
    and never ask why and never think who to ask,
    to slam the door and rip off her orange blouse.
    Father, father, I wish I were dead.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
