Famous quotes containing the word dry:

    I knew very well that this hope was chimerical. I was like a pauper who mingles fewer tears with his dry bread if he tells himself that at any moment a stranger will bequeath to him his fortune. We must all, in order to make reality more tolerable, keep alive in us a few little follies.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    D--n me, stranger, ef you can’t stay as long as you please, and I’ll give you plenty to eat and drink. Play away, stranger, you kin sleep on the dry spot tonight!
    —Administration in the State of Arka, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
