Famous quotes containing the words wing and/or left:

    Love’s the only thing I’ve thought of or read about since I was knee-high. That’s what I always dreamed of, of meeting somebody and falling in love. And when that remarkable thing happened, I was going to recite poetry to her for hours about how her heart’s an angel’s wing and her hair the strings of a heavenly harp. Instead I got drunk and hollered at her and called her a harpy.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    “When was I ever anything but kind to him?
    But I’ll not have the fellow back,” he said.
    “I told him so last haying, didn’t I?
    ‘If he left then,’ I said, ‘that ended it.’
    What good is he? Who else will harbor him
    At his age for the little he can do?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
