Famous quotes containing the word crash:

    Crash on crash of the sea,
    straining to wreck men, sea-boards, continents,
    raging against the world, furious.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    At the crash of economic collapse of which the rumblings can already be heard, the sleeping soldiers of the proletariat will awake as at the fanfare of the Last Judgment and the corpses of the victims of the struggle will arise and demand an accounting from those who are loaded down with curses.

    Throws down in front of us is not to bar
    Our passage to our journey’s end for good,
    But just to ask us who we think we are....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
