### Famous quotes containing the word curves:

“At the end of every diet, the path *curves* back toward the trough.”

—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

“One way to do it might be by making the scenery penetrate the automobile. A polished black sedan was a good subject, especially if parked at the intersection of a tree-bordered street and one of those heavyish spring skies whose bloated gray clouds and amoeba-shaped blotches of blue seem more physical than the reticent elms and effusive pavement. Now break the body of the car into separate *curves* and panels; then put it together in terms of reflections.”

—Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

“For a hundred and fifty years, in the pasture of dead horses,

roots of pine trees pushed through the pale *curves* of your ribs,

yellow blossoms flourished above you in autumn, and in winter

frost heaved your bones in the ground—old toilers, soil makers:

O Roger, Mackerel, Riley, Ned, Nellie, Chester, Lady Ghost.”

—Donald Hall (b. 1928)
