Patch

Famous quotes containing the word patch:

    I sing a hero’s head, large eye
    And bearded bronze, but not a man,

    Although I patch him as I can
    And reach through him almost to man.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Whatever patch of limb
    he gazes on
    with unblinking eyes,
    I cover up
    but I want him to see it all anyway.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    Imperious Caesar, dead and turned to clay,
    Might stop a hole to keep the wind away.
    O that that earth which kept the world in awe
    Should patch a wall t’expel the winter’s flaw!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
