Heels

Famous quotes containing the word heels:

    in small war on the heels of small
    war—until the end of time
    to police the earth, a ghost
    orbiting forever lost
    in our monotonous sublime.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    He is dead and gone, lady,
    He is dead and gone,
    At his head a grass-green turf,
    At his heels a stone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    And there were present
    the Picninnies,
    and the Jobillies,
    and the Garyulies,
    and the great Panjandrum himself,
    with the little round button at top;
    and they all fell to playing the game
    of catch-as-catch-can,
    till the gunpowder ran out at the heels of their boots.
    Samuel Foote (1720–1777)
