Famous quotes containing the word bucket:

    And now, far removed from the loved habitation,
    The tear of regret will intrusively swell,
    As fancy reverts to my father’s plantation,
    And sighs for the bucket that hung in the well.
    Samuel Woodworth (1788–1842)

    Dear fellow-artist, why so free
    With every sort of company,
    With every Jack and Jill?
    Choose your companions from the best;
    Who draws a bucket with the rest
    Soon topples down the hill.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    She was a charming middle-aged lady with a face like a bucket of mud. I gave her a drink. She was a gal who’d take a drink if she had to knock me down to get the bottle.
    John Paxton (1911–1985)
