Cover

Famous quotes containing the word cover:

    Laid out for death, let thy last kindness be
    With leaves and moss-work for to cover me:
    And while the wood-nymphs my cold corpse inter,
    Sing thou my dirge, sweet-warbling chorister!
    For epitaph, in foliage, next write this:
    Here, here the tomb of Robin Herrick is.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    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)

    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)
