Famous quotes containing the word flash:

    The legislator must be in advance of his age.
    Across the mind of the statesman flash ever and anon the brilliant, though partial, intimations of future events.... Something which is more than fore-sight and less than prophetic knowledge marks the statesman a peculiar being among his contemporaries.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    What the hell is nostalgia doing in a science-fiction film?

If there’s a message there, I don’t think I want to hear it.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
