Frets

Famous quotes containing the word frets:

    Green springs the tree, hemp grows, the wag is wild,
    But when they meet, it makes the timber rot;
    It frets the halter, and it chokes the child.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552?–1618)

    A wind has started a little whirlpool
    of sand where the carpet ought to be,
    and shells lie
    by the preposterous feet
    of that woman who frets me, annihilates me,
    O she will kill me yet.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
