Famous quotes containing the word hat:
“The purity of today will invest us like a breeze,
Only be hard, spare, ironical: something one can
Tip ones hat to and still get some use out of.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“The hat I was married in,
will it do?
White, broad, fake flowers in a tiny array.
Its old-fashioned, as stylish as a bedbug,
but it suits to die in something nostalgic.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Every one knows about the young man who falls in love with the chorus-girl because she can kick his hat off, and his sisters friends cant or wont. But the youth who marries her, expecting that all her departures from convention will be as agile or as delightful to him as that, is still the classic example of folly.”
—Katharine Fullerton Gerould (18791944)
