Famous quotes containing the words engines and/or stroke:

    America is like one of those old-fashioned six-cylinder truck engines that can be missing two sparkplugs and have a broken flywheel and have a crankshaft that’s 5000 millimeters off fitting properly, and two bad ball-bearings, and still runs. We’re in that kind of situation. We can have substantial parts of the population committing suicide, and still run and look fairly good.
    Thomas McGuane (b. 1939)

    So was produced this tragedy
    In a far tower of ivory
    Where, O young men, late in the night
    All you who drink light and stroke the air
    Come back, seeking the night, and cry
    To strict Rapunzel to let down her hair.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
