Famous quotes containing the words stick and/or red:

    If a madman were to come into this room with a stick in his hand, no doubt we should pity the state of his mind; but our primary consideration would be to take care of ourselves. We should knock him down first, and pity him afterwards.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    It might become a wheel spoked red and white
    In alternate stripes converging at a point
    Of flame on the line, with a second wheel below,
    Just rising, accompanying, arranged to cross,
    Through weltering illuminations, humps
    Of billows, downward, toward the drift-fire shore.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
