Famous quotes containing the word jelly:

    Your death, dear Lady, was quite cold
    For all the brave tears and ultimate spasm.
    So civilized were your thin hands, I marvel
    They too, like jelly fishes, came from protoplasm.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    I love this child. Red-haired—patient and gentle like her mother—fey and funny like her father. When she giggles I can hear him when he and I were young. I am part of this child. It may be only because we share genes and that therefore smell familiar to each other. . . . It may be that a part of me lives in her in some important way. . . . But for now, it’s jelly beans and “Old MacDonald” that unite us.
    Robert Fulghum (20th century)
