Mice

Famous quotes containing the word mice:

    It is as when a migrating army of mice girdles a forest of pines. The chopper fells trees from the same motive that the mouse gnaws them,—to get his living. You tell me that he has a more interesting family than the mouse. That is as it happens.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And the sun and the stove and the mice and the gnawed paper
    Made up the days and nights when I missed supper,
    Paring my nails, looking over the farbelow street
    Of tramways and bells. But one night I heard the feet.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Yes, dance. Dance and dream. Dream that you’re Mrs. Henry Jekyll of Harley Street, dancing with your own butler and six footmen. Dream that they’ve all turned into white mice and crawled into an eternal pumpkin.
    John Lee Mahin (1902–1984)
