Words strain, Crack and sometimes break, under the burden, Under the tension, slip, slide, perish, Decay with imprecision, will not stay in place, Will not stay still.
T. S. Eliot
I know you want it, boy. I see you tryin. Just keep on pushin, I'm a let you slide in.
Each of us, deep down, believes that the whole world issues from his own precious body, like images projected from a tiny slide onto an earth-sized screen. And then, deeper down, each of us knows he's wrong.
It is so easy to get sucked into the if-only game, and playing it is a short and slippery slide into despair.
William P. Young
The swift years slip and slide adown the steep; The slow years pass; neither will come again.
Eighteen thousand miles from the moon is some slide, but I'll get up there again some way!
If you tell a kid not to run to a water slide, he/she will walk for 2 steps, then start running again.
A true man never frets about his place in the world, but just slides into it by the gravitation of his nature, and swings there as easily as a star.
Edwin Hubbell Chapin
