Famous quotes containing the word pocket:

    They would have me as familiar with men’s pockets as their
    gloves or their handkerchiefs; which makes much against my
    manhood, if I should take from another’s pocket to put into
    mine; for it is plain pocketing up of wrongs.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Most of our pocket wisdom is conceived for the use of mediocre people, to discourage them from ambitious attempts, and generally console them in their mediocrity.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
