Famous quotes containing the words foams and/or liquid:

    This fantastic state of mind, of a humanity that has outrun its ideas, is matched by a political scene in the grotesque style, with Salvation Army methods, hallelujahs and bell-ringing and dervishlike repetition of monotonous catchwords, until everybody foams at the mouth.

    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)

    Don’t forget the Dance Halls
    Warwick and Savoy,
    Where he picked his women, where
    He drank his liquid joy.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
