Pull

Famous quotes containing the word pull:

    I have a toothache today. I never seem to be able to rise above a toothache. It makes me want to howl, break things, pull noses, tweak ears, screech.
    John Colton (1886–1946)

    We are like horses who hurt themselves as soon as they pull on their bits—and we bow our heads. We even lose consciousness of the situation, we just submit. Any re-awakening of thought is then painful.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    Never seem wiser, nor more learned, than the people you are with. Wear your learning, like your watch, in a private pocket: and do not merely pull it out and strike it; merely to show that you have one.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
