Famous quotes containing the word coat:

    While yet it is cold January, and snow and ice are thick and solid, the prudent landlord comes from the village to get ice to cool his summer drink; impressively, even pathetically, wise, to foresee the heat and thirst of July now in January,—wearing a thick coat and mittens! when so many things are not provided for. It may be that he lays up no treasures in this world which will cool his summer drink in the next.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Want is a growing giant whom the coat of Have was never large enough to cover.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When every Sunday afternoon
    On the Green Lands I walk
    And wear a coat in fashion,
    Memories of the talk
    Of hen wives and of queer old men
    Brace me and make me strong....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
