Famous quotes containing the word dines:

    Take adultery or theft.
    Merely sins.
    It is evil who dines on the soul,
    stretching out its long bone tongue.
    It is evil who tweezers my heart,
    picking out its atomic worms.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    He rides in the Row at ten o’clock in the morning, goes to the Opera three times a week, changes his clothes at least five times a day, and dines out every night of the season. You don’t call that leading an idle life, do you?
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
