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)

    The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    At a time when pimpery, lick-spittlery, and picking the public’s pocket are the order of the day—indeed, officially proclaimed as virtue—the poet must play the madcap to keep his balance. And ours.
    Studs Terkel (b. 1912)
