Famous quotes containing the word armored:

    O mud
    For watermelons gutted to the crust,
    Mud for the mole-tide harbor, mud for mouse,
    Mud for the armored Diesel fishing tubs that thud
    A year and a day to wind and tide; the dust
    Is on this skipping heart that shakes my house,
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
