Famous quotes containing the word thin:

    It is dangerous for a woman to defy the gods;
    To taunt them with the tongue’s thin tip,
    Or strut in the weakness of mere humanity,
    Or draw a line daring them to cross;
    Anne Spencer (1882–1975)

    I guess what I’ve really discovered is the humanizing effect of children in my life—stretching me, humbling me. Maybe my thighs aren’t as thin as they used to be. Maybe my getaways aren’t as glamorous. Still I like the woman that motherhood has helped me to become.
    Susan Lapinski (20th century)

    Much of a man’s character will be found betokened in his backbone. I would rather feel your spine than your skull, whoever you are. A thin joist of a spine never yet upheld a full and noble soul.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
