Famous quotes containing the word hat:

    I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    The purity of today will invest us like a breeze,
    Only be hard, spare, ironical: something one can
    Tip one’s hat to and still get some use out of.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    There was on old person of Fratton
    Who went to church with his hat on.
    “If I wake up,” he said,
    “With my hat on my head,
    I shall know that it hasn’t been sat on.”
    Anonymous.
