Famous quotes containing the word plunge:

    But it is the same thing we are all seeing,
    Our world. Go after it,
    Go get it boy, says the man holding the stick.
    Eat, says the hunger, and we plunge blindly in again,
    Into the chamber behind the thought.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    O plunge your hands in water, Plunge them in up to the wrist;
    Stare, stare in the basin And wonder what you’ve missed.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    The mystery of the evening-star brilliant in silence and distance between the downward-surging plunge of the sun and the vast, hollow seething of inpouring night. The magnificence of the watchful morning-star, that watches between the night and the day, the gleaming clue to the two opposites.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
