Famous quotes containing the word pitch:

    I dream that I have brought
    To such a pitch my thought
    That coming time can say,
    “He shadowed in a glass
    What thing her body was.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I saw the Arab map.
    It resembled a mare shuffling on,
    dragging its history like saddlebags,
    nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.
    Adonis [Ali Ahmed Said] (b. 1930)

    People do not know the natural infirmity of their mind: it does nothing but ferret and quest, and keeps incessantly whirling around, building up and becoming entangled in its own work, like our silkworms, and is suffocated in it: a mouse in a pitch barrel.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
