A bubble is a spherically contained volume of air or other gas, especially one made from soapy liquid.


  • The wind blows out, the bubble dies;
    The spring entomb'd in autumn lies;
    The dew dries up; the star is shot;
    The flight is past—and man forgot.
  • Like bubbles on the sea of matter born.
  • In infinite time, in infinite matter, in infinite space, is formed a bubble-organism, and that bubble lasts a while and bursts, and that bubble is Me.
    • Leo Tolstoy, Levin in Anna Karenina, C. Garnett, trans. (New York: 2003), Part 8, Chapter 9, p. 729
