Famous quotes containing the word sheet:

    You take the lake. I look and look at it.
    I see it’s a fair, pretty sheet of water.
    I stand and make myself repeat out loud
    The advantages it has....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    And he was

    there in the hall, flat on a sheet of blood that
    ran down the stairs. I did appreciate it. There are few
    hosts who so thoroughly prepare to greet a guest
    only casually invited, and that several months ago.
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)

    Some days your hat’s off to the full-time mothers for being able to endure the relentless routine and incessant policing seven days a week instead of two. But on other days, merely the image of this woman crafting a brontosaurus out of sugar paste and sheet cake for her two-year-old’s birthday drives a stake through your heart.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
