« All quotes from this author

Tying her bonnet under her chin,
She tied her raven ringlets in;
But not alone in the silken snare
Did she catch her lovely floating hair,
For, tying her bonnet under her chin,
She tied a young manís heart within.
The Love-knot, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

Well, ah tied on, percht on mah bed ah was,
Sticken' a needle in mah arm, Ah tied off,
F**ken wings burst out mah back!

Nick Cave

"Actually you donít need to exercise to obtain my chin. Pretty sure a hacksaw could obtain you my chin..."


Bob Hope: [finding some coins tied with string in Jack's trousers] When you ask this kid for a loan, and he says his money is tied up, he isn't kidding. This is an obstacle course for pickpockets.

Jack Benny

For when we are interested in the beauty of a thing, the oftener we can see it the better; but when we are interested only by the story of a thing, we get tired of hearing the same tale told over and over again, and stopping always at the same point ó we want a new story presently, a newer and better one ó and the picture of the day, and novel of the day, become as ephemeral as the coiffure or the bonnet of the day. Now this spirit is wholly adverse to the existence of any lovely art. If you mean to throw it aside to-morrow, you can never have it to-day.

John Ruskin

An honest man, close-buttoned to the chin,
Broadcloth without, and a warm heart within.

William Cowper
