Famous quotes containing the word couples:

    There are only two or three couples in history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A whole village-full of sensuous emotion, scattered abroad all the year long, surged here in a focus for an hour. The forty hearts of those waving couples were beating as they had not done since, twelve months before, they had come together in similar jollity. For the time Paganism was revived in their hearts, the pride of life was all in all, and they adored none other than themselves.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Could that old god rise up again
    We’d drink a can or two,
    And out and lay our leadership
    On country and on town,
    Throw likely couples into bed
    And knock the others down.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
