Famous quotes containing the word dogs:
“In Bengal to move at all
Is seldom, if ever, done,
But mad dogs and Englishmen
Go out in the midday sun.”
—Noël Coward (18991973)
“The very dogs were all asleep, and the flies, drunk with moist sugar in the grocers shop, forgot their wings and briskness, and baked to death in dusty corners of the window.”
—Charles Dickens (18121870)
“He turns agen and drives the noisy crowd
And beats the dogs in noises loud.
He drives away and beats them every one,
And then they loose them all and set them on.
He falls as dead and kicked by boys and men,
Then starts and grins and drives the crowd agen;
Till kicked and torn and beaten out he lies
And leaves his hold and cackles, groans, and dies.”
—John Clare (17931864)
