Close Approaches

Famous quotes containing the words close and/or approaches:

    And now, dear little children, who may this story read,
    To idle, silly, flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed;
    Unto an evil counselor close heart, and ear, and eye,
    And take a lesson from this tale of the Spider and the Fly.
    Mary Howitt (1799–1888)

    Someone approaches to say his life is ruined
    and to fall down at your feet
    and pound his head upon the sidewalk.
    David Ignatow (b. 1914)
