Famous quotes containing the word drop:

    George Shears ... was hanged in a barn near the store. The rope was thrown over a beam, and he was asked to walk up a ladder to save the trouble of preparing a drop for him. “Gentlemen,” he said, “I am not used to this business. Shall I jump off or slide off?” He was told to jump.
    —For the State of Montana, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Water, water, everywhere,
    And all the boards did shrink;
    Water, water, everywhere
    Nor any drop to drink.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    But the yellow antipodal Kangaroo, when she sits up,
    Who can useat her, like a liquid drop that is heavy, and just
    touches earth.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
