Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or slam:

    This we take it is the grand characteristic of our age. By our skill in Mechanism, it has come to pass, that in the management of external things we excel all other ages; while in whatever respects the pure moral nature, in true dignity of soul and character, we are perhaps inferior to most civilised ages.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

    to slam the door on all the days she’ll stay the same
    and never ask why and never think who to ask,
    to slam the door and rip off her orange blouse.
    Father, father, I wish I were dead.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
