Famous quotes containing the word hit:

    If you hit a snake and don’t kill it, you’ll be sorry later on.
    Chinese proverb.

    You don’t hit a child when you want him to stop hitting. You don’t yell at a children to get them to stop yelling. Or spit at a child to indicate that he should not spit. Of course, you want children to know how to sympathize with others and to “know how it feels,” but you ... have to show them how to act—not how not to act.
    Jeannette W. Galambos (20th century)

    Your yen two wol slee me sodenly,
    I may the beaute of hem not sustene,
    So woundeth hit through-out my herte kene.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
