Famous quotes containing the word clerk:

    You can’t be what you don’t see. I didn’t think about being a doctor. I didn’t even think about being a clerk in a store—I’d never seen a black clerk in a clothing store.
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)

    A clerk ther was of Oxenford also
    That unto logyk hadde longe ygo.
    As leene was his hors as is a rake,
    And he nas nat right fat, I undertake,
    But looked holwe, and therto sobrely.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    Your faith an’ trouth yese never get
    Nor our trew Love shall never twain
    Till ye come within my bower
    And kiss me both cheek and chin.

    My mouth it is full cold, Margret,
    It has the smell now of the ground;
    An’ if I kiss thy com’ly mouth
    Thy life days will not be long.
    —Unknown. Clerk Saunders (l. 109–116)
