Dirty

Famous quotes containing the word dirty:

    We’re headed for collapse, if you want my opinion, Missy. I can see it in the fallin’ off of the quality of vagrants. There was a time you could find real good company in almost any jungle you’d pick, men who could talk, men who’d read a book now and then; and now, what do you find, a lot of dirty little guttersnipes no decent tramp would want to associate with.
    Well, it’s been that way all through history.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    Oh, it is I,
    Incredibly skinny, stooped, and neat as pie,
    Ignorant as dirt, erotic as an ape,
    Dreamy as puberty—with dirty hair!
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    All parents occasionally have ambivalent feelings toward their children. We love our kids, but there are times when we don’t really like them, or at least we can’t stand what our children are doing. But most of us keep those feelings to ourselves, as if it’s dirty little secret. It doesn’t fit in with our images of what we should do and feel as parents.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
