Final Laps

Famous quotes containing the words final and/or laps:

    There is no country in which so absolute a homage is paid to wealth. In America there is a touch of shame when a man exhibits the evidences of large property, as if after all it needed apology. But the Englishman has pure pride in his wealth, and esteems it a final certificate. A coarse logic rules throughout all English souls: if you have merit, can you not show it by your good clothes and coach and horses?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    They’ll take suggestion as a cat laps milk;
    They’ll tell the clock to any business that
    We say befits the hour.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
