Famous quotes containing the word fixing:

    he dreadful darts
    With rapid glide along the leaning line;
    And, fixing in the wretch his cruel fangs
    James Thomson (1700–1748)

    You cutting the lawn, fixing the machines,
    all this leprous day and then more vodka,
    more soda and the pond forgiving our bodies,
    the pond sucking out the throb.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
