Famous quotes containing the words guns and/or machine:

    With drums and guns, and guns and drums
    The enemy nearly slew ye,
    My darling dear, you look so queer,
    Och, Johnny, I hardly knew ye!
    Unknown. Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye (l. Chorus.)

    stairs, carpets, furniture, people
    those people who stand at the open windows like objects
    waiting to topple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
