Famous quotes containing the words cells and/or flame:

    They are sworn enemies of lyric poetry.
    In prison they accompany the jailer,
    Enter cells to hear confessions.
    Their short-end comes down
    When you least expect it.
    Charles Simic (b. 1938)

    one pale woman all alone,
    The daylight kissing her wan hair,
    Loitered beneath the gas lamps’ flare,
    With lips of flame and heart of stone.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
