Famous quotes containing the words plate and/or roof:

    I sometimes have the sense that I live my life as a writer with my nose pressed against the wide, shiny plate glass window of the “mainstream” culture. The world seems full of straight, large-circulation, slick periodicals which wouldn’t think of reviewing my book and bookstores which will never order it.
    Jan Clausen (b. 1943)

    A tempest cracked on the theatre. Quickly,

    Overseas, that stood in an external world.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
