Famous quotes containing the word spin:

    In tragic life, God wot,
    No villain need be! Passions spin the plot:
    We are betrayed by what is false within.
    George Meredith (1828–1909)

    Words can have no single fixed meaning. Like wayward electrons, they can spin away from their initial orbit and enter a wider magnetic field. No one owns them or has a proprietary right to dictate how they will be used.
    David Lehman (b. 1948)
