Flies

Famous quotes containing the word flies:

    Love to chawnk green apples an’ go swimmin’ in the
    lake.—
    Hate to take the castor-ile they give for belly-ache!
    ‘Most all the time, the whole year round, there ain’t no flies on
    me,
    But jest ‘fore Christmas I’m as good as I kin be!
    Eugene Field (1850–1895)

    Alas for the cripple Practice when it seeks to come up with the bird Theory, which flies before it. Try your design on the best school. The scholars are of all ages and temperaments and capacities. It is difficult to class them, some are too young, some are slow, some perverse. Each requires so much consideration, that the morning hope of the teacher, of a day of love and progress, is often closed at evening by despair.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    People are inexterminable—like flies and bed-bugs. There will always be some that survive in cracks and crevices—that’s us.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
