Famous quotes containing the words resistance and/or polish:

    The greatest, or rather the most prominent, part of this city was constructed with the design to offer the deadest resistance to leaden and iron missiles that might be cast against it. But it is a remarkable meteorological and psychological fact, that it is rarely known to rain lead with much violence, except on places so constructed.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You will have to polish up the stars
    with Bab-o and find a new God
    as the earth empties out
    into the gnarled hands of the old redeemer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
