Quotes containing the word lightbulb


1. Man...heats up like a lightbulb: red hot in the twinkling of an eye and cold again in a flash. The female, on the other hand...heats up like an iron. Slowly, over a low heat, like tasty stew. But then, once she has heated up, there's no stopping her.
- Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
