Famous quotes containing the words slam and/or summer:

    to slam the door on all the days she’ll stay the same
    and never ask why and never think who to ask,
    to slam the door and rip off her orange blouse.
    Father, father, I wish I were dead.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Taffeta phrases, silken phrases precise,
    Three-piled hyperbole, spruce affectation,
    Figures pedantical—these summer flies
    Have blown me full of maggot ostentation.
    I do forswear them.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
