Famous quotes containing the word whirl:

    Dizzily down the abyss he wheels—
    So fell Darius. Upon his crown,
    In the midst of the barn-yard he came down,
    In a wonderful whirl of tangled strings,
    Broken braces and broken springs,
    Broken tail and broken wings,
    John Townsend Trowbridge (1827–1916)

    With a whirl of thought oppressed
    I sink from reverie to rest.
    An horrid vision seized my head,
    I saw the graves give up their dead.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    Rub a half potato on your wart
    and wrap it in a damp cloth. Close
    your eyes and whirl three times and throw.
    Then bury rag and spud exactly where they fall.
    Richard Hugo (1923–1982)
