Famous quotes containing the words mice and/or nod:

    The best laid schemes o’ mice and men Gang aft agley;
    An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d joy!
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    Sometimes we see a cloud that’s dragonish,
    A vapor sometimes like a bear or lion,
    A towered citadel, a pendant rock,
    A forked mountain, or blue promontory
    With trees upon ‘t that nod unto the world
    And mock our eyes with air. Thou hast seen these signs;
    They are black vesper’s pageants.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
