Famous quotes containing the word lick:

    People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    Rich fellas come up and they die, and their kids ain’t no good, and they die out. But we keep a-comin’. We’re the people that live. They can’t wipe us out. They can’t lick us. And we’ll go on forever, Pa, ‘cause we’re the people.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man’s table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores. The poor man died and was carried away by the angels to be with Abraham.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 16:19-22.
