Famous quotes containing the word smash:

    The spirit of the place is a strange thing. Our mechanical age tries to override it. But it does not succeed. In the end the strange, sinister spirit of the place, so diverse and adverse in differing places, will smash our mechanical oneness into smithereens.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    No direct hit to smash the shatter-proof
    And lodge at last the quivering needle
    Clean in the eye of one who stands transfixed
    In fascination of her brightness.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    You make a toast for tomorrow
    and smash the cup,
    letting your false women lap the dish I had to fatten up.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
