Famous quotes containing the word coat:

    The old coat that I wear is Concord; it is my morning robe and study gown, my working dress and suit of ceremony, and my nightgown after all. Cleave to the simplest ever. Home,—home,—home. Cars sound like cares to me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An aged man is but a paltry thing,
    A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
    Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
    For every tatter in its mortal dress.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    An aged man is but a paltry thing,
    A tattered coat upon a stick,
