Famous quotes containing the word burst:

    and wait and watch until
    The fattening dots burst into nimble-
    Swimming tadpoles.
    Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)

    I pray we are still a young and courageous nation, that we have not grown so old and so fat and so prosperous that all we can think about is to sit back with our arms around our money bags. If we choose to do that I have no doubt that the smoldering fires will burst into flame and consume us—dollars and all.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    It was so old a ship—who knows, who knows?
    MAnd yet so beautiful, I watched in vain
    To see the mast burst open with a rose,
    And the whole deck put on its leaves again.
    James Elroy Flecker (1884–1919)
