Famous quotes containing the word legs:

    I sometimes despair of getting anything quite simple and honest done in this world by the help of men. They would have to be passed through a powerful press first, to squeeze their old notions out of them, so that they would not soon get upon their legs again.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But I am here,
    And they are far, and time is old.
    Within my dream the grass is cold;
    The legs and locked; the sky is dead.
    Mark Van Doren (1894–1973)

    the small tuft of fronds or katydid legs above each eye, still
    numbering the units in each group;
    the shadbones regularly set about the mouth, to droop or rise
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
