What is flash lamp?

Famous quotes containing the words lamp and/or flash:

    When the lamp is shattered,
    The light in the dust lies dead;
    When the cloud is scattered,
    The rainbow’s glory is shed;
    When the lute is broken,
    Sweet tones are remembered not;
    When the lips have spoken,
    Loved accents are soon forgot.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    When the cross blue lightning seemed to open
    The breast of heaven, I did present myself
    Even in the aim and very flash of it.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
