Famous quotes containing the word neck:
“It is getting dark and time he drew to a house,
But the blizzard blinds him to any house ahead.
The storm gets down his neck in any icy souse
That sucks his breath like a wicked cat in bed.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“Man is the head of the family, woman the neck that turns the head.”
