Famous quotes containing the word shaft:

    Lord, crack their teeth! Lord, crush these lions’ jaws!
    So let them sink as water in the sand;
    When deadly bow their aiming fury draws,
    Shiver the shaft ere past the shooter’s hand.
    So make them melt as the dishoused snail
    —Bible: Hebrew Psalm LVIII (Paraphrased by the Countess of Pembroke)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The subterranean miner that works in us all, how can one tell whither leads his shaft by the ever shifting, muffled sound of his pick?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
