Famous quotes containing the word inhaled:

    Tilting up his nose,
    He inhaled the rancid rosin, burly smells
    Of dampened lumber, emanations blown
    From warehouse doors, the gustiness of ropes,
    Decays of sacks, and all the arrant stinks
    That helped him round his rude ├Žsthetic out.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
