Kettle Quotations

Human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.
Gustave Flaubert

There are a lot of ways to make people not like you, but one of the most powerful - if least fair - is to be really, really successful. Nobody resents the guy who just lost his job. But the guy whose Internet start-up made him a billionaire at 25? That's a whole different kettle of envy.
Jeffrey Kluger

Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity.
Gustave Flaubert

I like to jump some rope and swing kettle bells to get my blood pumping. It makes my voice sound better, and it clears my head.
Harry Connick, Jr.

I'm kind of a big kettle. It takes time to get boiled, but then I'm always hot.
Haruki Murakami
