Famous quotes containing the words balloon, air and/or hot:
“When I am on a stage, I am the focus of thousands of eyes and it gives me strength. I feel that something, some energy, is flowing from the audience into me. I actually feel stronger because of these waves. Now when the plays done, the eyes taken away, I feel just as if a circuits been broken. The power is switched off. I feel all gone and empty inside of melike a balloon thats been pricked and the airs let out.”
—Lynn Fontanne (18871983)
“After us theyll fly in hot air balloons, coat styles will change, perhaps theyll discover a sixth sense and cultivate it, but life will remain the same, a hard life full of secrets, but happy. And a thousand years from now man will still be sighing, Oh! Life is so hard! and will still, like now, be afraid of death and not want to die.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
“Blotting the sun
Stinging the eyes.
The hot seeds steam underground
—Gary Snyder (b. 1930)
