Famous quotes containing the word neck:

    In Florida consider the flamingo,
    Its color passion but its neck a question.
    Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989)

    The seven deadly sins.... Food, clothing, firing, rent, taxes, respectability and children. Nothing can lift those seven millstones from Man’s neck but money; and the spirit cannot soar until the millstones are lifted.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    your antlers like seaweed,
    your face like a wolf’s death mask,
    your mouth a virgin, your nose a nipple,
    your legs muscled up like knitting balls,
    your neck mournful as an axe....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
