White as a winding sheet, Masks blowing down the street: Moscow, Paris London, Vienna all are undone. The drums of death are mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, Mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, The world's floors are quaking, crumbling and breaking.
You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilisation from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass.Buchan, John, 1st BaronTweedsmuir
Glass is a thing in disguise, an actor, is not solid at all, but a liquid?an old sheet of glass will not only take on a royal and purplish tinge but will reveal its true liquid nature by having grown fatter at the bottom and thinner at thetop, and? It isinvisible, solid, in short a joyous and paradoxical thing, asgood a material as any tobuild a life from.Peter Carey
A budget must be more than a ledger sheet. It should have a heart and serve as a blueprint for a better quality of life for all residents.john r. leopold
Hitler would go as white as a sheet and tightly clench his jaws, while his eyes would dilate. Everyone in his entourage would get panicky because these fits were always followed by an order to dismiss or to execute somebody.theodor morell
We will reject interesting opportunities rather than over-leverage our balance sheet.warren buffett
A rustic setting always suggests fantasy; to suggest science fiction, you need sheet metal and plastic. You need rivets.orson scott card
Minimal sculpture is composed of extremely simple, monumental geometric forms made of fibreglass , plastic , sheet metal, or aluminum , either left raw or solidly painted with bright industrial colours. Like the painters , minimalist sculptors attempted to make their works totally objective, unexpressive, and non-referential.

In most countries in the world, your fate and your identity are handed to you; in America, you determine them for yourself. America is a country where you get to write the script of your own life. Your life is like a blank sheet of paper, and you are the artist.
It smelt so faint, and it smelt so sweet, It made me creep and it made me cold. Like the scent that steals from the crumbling sheet Where a mummy is half unroll'd.
The mind is like a sheet of white paper in this, that the impressions it receives the oftenest, and retains the longest, are black ones.
A wet sheet and a flowing sea, A wind that follows fast, And fills the white and rustling sail, And bends the gallant mast.Allan Cunningham
This letter writing is a miserable way of communicating, after all, though I would not on any account be deprived of it. But when ones soul is full, and only a little sheet, to put it into, it is so aggravating. There are so many things I want to say, and feel with you, that I dont know where to begin.lucy stone
Trade hardly deems the busy day begun Till his keen eye along the sheet has run; The blooming daughter throws her needle by, And reads her schoolmate's marriage with a sigh; While the grave mother puts her glasses on, And gives a tear to some old crony gone. The preacher, too, his Sunday theme lays down To know what last new folly fills the town; Lively or sad, life's meanest, mightiest things, The fate of fighting cocks, or fighting kings.charles sprague
