Famous quotes containing the words taylor and/or mick:

    The definition of good prose is proper words in their proper places; of good verse, the most proper words in their proper places. The propriety is in either case relative. The words in prose ought to express the intended meaning, and no more; if they attract attention to themselves, it is, in general, a fault.
    —Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    America is the world’s policeman, all right—a big, dumb, mick flatfoot in the middle of the one thing cops dread most, a “domestic disturbance.”
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)
