Famous quotes containing the word pipe:
“I am dead against arts being self-expression. I see an inherent failure in any story which fails to detach itself from the authordetach itself in the sense that a well-blown soap-bubble detaches itself from the bowl of the blowers pipe and spherically takes off into the air as a new, whole, pure, iridescent world. Whereas the ill-blown bubble, as children know, timidly adheres to the bowls lip, then either bursts or sinks flatly back again.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
“Wind and Thistle for pipe and dancers
And never a ploughman under the Sun.
Never a ploughman. Never a one.”
—Hilaire Belloc (18701953)
“When you can pipe that merry old strain,
Robert of Lincoln, come back again.”
—William Cullen Bryant (17941878)
