Famous quotes containing the words left and/or foot:

    Someone hangs in the sky
    over there from a piece of rope,
    hammering and fitting God’s belly-scratcher,
    working his way up along the spire
    until there’s nothing left to nail on—
    Alfred Wellington Purdy (b. 1919)

    Processions that lack high stilts have nothing that catches the eye.
    What if my great-granddad had a pair that were twenty foot high,
    And mine were but fifteen foot, no modern stalks upon higher,
    Some rogue of the world stole them to patch up a fence or a fire.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
