Famous quotes containing the word comb:

    So summer comes in the end to these few stains
    And the rust and rot of the door through which she went.
    The house is empty. But here is where she sat
    To comb her dewy hair, a touchless light,
    Perplexed by its darker iridescences.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    And still we wear our uniforms, follow
    The cracked cry of the bugles, comb and brush
    Our pride and prejudice, doctor the sallow
    Initial ardor, wish to keep it fresh.
    Still we applaud the President’s voice and face.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    Soldier, scholar, horseman, he,
    As ‘twere all life’s epitome.
    What made us dream that he could comb grey hair?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
