Famous quotes containing the word lap:

    She look’d amiable!—Why could I not live and end my days thus? Just disposer of our joys and sorrows, cried I, why could not a man sit down in the lap of content here—and dance, and sing, and say his prayers, and go to heaven with this nut brown maid?
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    If a dog jumps into your lap it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing it is because your lap is warmer.
    Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)

    Four and twenty at her back
    And they were a’ clad out in green;
    Tho the King of Scotland had been there
    The warst o’ them might hae been his Queen.

    On we lap and awa we rade
    Till we cam to yon bonny ha’
    Whare the roof was o’ the beaten gold
    And the floor was o’ the cristal a’.
    —Unknown. The Wee Wee Man (l. 21–28)
