Famous quotes containing the word lap:

    He gives the impression of a strong mind which is composed and wise. His brown eye is exceedingly kindly and gentle. A child would like to sit in his lap and a dog would sidle up to him. It is difficult to associate his personality and this impression of kindness and gentle simplicity with what has occurred here in connection with these purges and shootings of the Red Army generals, and so forth.
    Joseph Davies (1876–1958)

    Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    The plum my mother picked matured slowly,
    The boy she dropped from darkness at her side
    Into the sided lap of light grew strong....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
