Famous quotes containing the word neck:

    After all, it is not where one washes one’s neck that counts but where one moistens one’s throat.
    Djuna Barnes (1892–1982)

    Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive,
    Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.
    The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow;
    They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
    And flare up bodily, wings and all. What then?
    Who’s sorry for a gnat ... or girl?
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    I cruelly hate cruelty, both by nature and reason, as the worst of all the vices. But then I am so soft in this that I cannot see a chicken’s neck wrung without distress, and cannot bear to hear the squealing of a hare between the teeth of my hounds.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
