Famous quotes containing the words metal and/or heavy:

    And, indeed, is there not something holy about a great kitchen?... The scoured gleam of row upon row of metal vessels dangling from hooks or reposing on their shelves till needed with the air of so many chalices waiting for the celebration of the sacrament of food. And the range like an altar, yes, before which my mother bowed in perpetual homage, a fringe of sweat upon her upper lip and the fire glowing in her cheeks.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    You will surely wear yourself out, both you and these people with you. For the task is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 18:18.
