Famous quotes containing the word cello:

    one is in a shoe factory cursing the machine,
    one is at the aquarium tending a seal,
    one is dull at the wheel of her Ford,
    one is at the toll gate collecting,
    one is tying the cord of a calf in Arizona,
    one is straddling a cello in Russia....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
