Famous quotes containing the words shots and/or blocked:
“The simplest surrealist gesture consists in going out into the street, gun in hand, and taking pot shots at the crowd!”
—Surrealist slogan from the 1920s, quoted by Luis Buñuel in My Last Sigh, ch. 10 (1983)
“The vines of her arms
didnt cling to the ends of his clothes,
or did she plant herself in the doorway,
hurl herself at his feet,
or utter the word Stay!
But as that fool began to go
at the time when it was dark with swarming clouds,
the slim girl blocked her lovers way
with only a rising river
made with her flood of tears.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
