Famous quotes containing the words glacier and/or harvard:

    “The glacier knocks in the cupboard,
    The desert sighs in the bed,
    And the crack in the tea-cup opens
    A lane to the land of the dead.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    The slime pool that the dog drowned in . . .
    A drunk vomiting up a teaspoon of bile . . .
    Washing the polio off the grapes when I was ten . . .
    A Harvard book bag in Rome . . .
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
