Famous quotes containing the word coat:

    I can sit up half the night
    With some friend that has the wit
    Not to allow his looks to tell
    When I am unintelligible.
    Fifteen apparitions have I seen;
    The worst a coat upon a coat-hanger.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I expect a time when, or rather an integrity by which, a man will get his coat as honestly and as perfectly fitting as a tree its bark. Now our garments are typical of our conformity to the ways of the world, i.e., of the devil, and to some extent react on us and poison us, like that shirt which Hercules put on.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Prepare your silken coat before it rains, and don’t wait until you are thirsty to dig a well.
    Chinese proverb.
