Famous quotes containing the words bay and/or coffin:

    Three miles long and two streets wide, the town curls around the bay ... a gaudy run with Mediterranean splashes of color, crowded steep-pitched roofs, fishing piers and fishing boats whose stench of mackerel and gasoline is as aphrodisiac to the sensuous nose as the clean bar-whisky smell of a nightclub where call girls congregate.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    Bear with me;
    My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
    And I must pause till it come back to me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
