Cover

Famous quotes containing the word cover:

    You may call a jay a bird. Well, so he is, in a measure—because he’s got feathers on him, and don’t belong to no church, perhaps; but otherwise he is just as much a human as you be. And I’ll tell you for why. A jay’s gifts and instincts, and feelings, and interests, cover the whole ground. A jay hasn’t got any more principle than a Congressman.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Though the whole wind
    slash at your bark,
    you are lifted up,
    aye though it hiss
    to cover you with froth.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
