Bottles

Famous quotes containing the word bottles:

    I was a closet pacifier advocate. So were most of my friends. Unknown to our mothers, we owned thirty or forty of those little suckers that were placed strategically around the house so a cry could be silenced in less than thirty seconds. Even though bottles were boiled, rooms disinfected, and germs fought one on one, no one seemed to care where the pacifier had been.
    Erma Bombeck (20th century)

    Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
    Bible: New Testament Jesus, in Matthew, 9:17.

    For some, bottles of liquor gleam like the towers of Eldorado.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
