Quotes containing the word fuse


1. This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be along process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.
- Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

- Ernst Jünger, Eumeswil
