Famous quotes containing the word coat:

    I can sit up half the night
    With some friend that has the wit
    Not to allow his looks to tell
    When I am unintelligible.
    Fifteen apparitions have I seen;
    The worst a coat upon a coat-hanger.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    When every Sunday afternoon
    On the Green Lands I walk
    And wear a coat in fashion,
    Memories of the talk
    Of hen wives and of queer old men
    Brace me and make me strong....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Commit a crime and the world is made of glass. Commit a crime, and it seems as if a coat of snow fell on the ground, such as reveals in the woods the track of every partridge and fox and squirrel and mole.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
