Famous quotes containing the word sucking:

    the small town big shot who, although very short,
    who although with a cigarette-stained mustache,
    who although famous for lobster on the rocks,
    left me here, nubkin, sucking in my vodka
    and emphysema cigarettes, unable to walk
    your walks, unable to write your writes.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    So if hunger provokes wailing and wailing brings the breast; if the breast permits sucking and milk suggests its swallow; if swallowing issues in sleep and stomachy comfort, then need, ache, message, object, act, and satisfaction are soon associated like charms on a chain; shortly our wants begin to envision the things which well reduce them, and the organism is finally said to wish.
    William Gass (b. 1924)

    I was glad to have got out of the towns, where I am wont to feel unspeakably mean and disgraced,—to have left behind me for a season the bar-rooms of Massachusetts, where the full-grown are not weaned from savage and filthy habits,—still sucking a cigar. My spirits rose in proportion to the outward dreariness. The towns needed to be ventilated. The gods would be pleased to see some pure flames from their altars. They are not to be appeased with cigar-smoke.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
