Famous quotes containing the word jaws:

    In Russia there is an emigration of intelligence: émigrés cross the frontier in order to read and to write good books. But in doing so they contribute to making their fatherland, abandoned by spirit, into the gaping jaws of Asia that would like to swallow our little Europe.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Swift as a shadow, short as any dream,
    Brief as the lightning in the collied night,
    That in a spleen unfolds both heaven and earth,
    And, ere a man hath power to say “Behold!”
    The jaws of darkness do devour it up.
    So quick bright things come to confusion.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The sweetest joys of life grow in the very jaws of its perils.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
