Famous quotes containing the word hat:

    But off with your hat and three times three for Columbia’s
    true-blue sons,
    The men below who batter the foe—the men behind the guns!
    John Jerome Rooney (1866–1934)

    “If the law supposes that,” said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, “the law is a ass—a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience—by experience.”
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    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)
