Famous quotes containing the words ark, noah, aboard and/or wives:

    My ark sings in the sun
    At God speeded summer’s end
    And the flood flowers now.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    And Noah he often said to his wife when he sat down to dine,
    “I don’t care where the water goes if it doesn’t get into the
    wine.”
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Our Lamaze instructor . . . assured our class . . . that our cervix muscles would become “naturally numb” as they swelled and stretched, and deep breathing would turn the final explosions of pain into “manageable discomfort.” This descriptions turned out to be as accurate as, say a steward advising passengers aboard the Titanic to prepare for a brisk but bracing swim.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    That’s right, son. That’s why I keep my hat on, so my horns don’t show. Why I’ve got more wives than Solomon hisself. At least that’s what folks around here say. And if they don’t say it, they, they think it.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
