Showing Hand

Famous quotes containing the words showing and/or hand:

    Navajo men and boys have an odd way of showing their friendship. When two young men meet at the trading post, a “Sing”, or a dance they greet each other, inquire about the health of their respective families, then stand silently some ten or fifteen minutes while one feels the other’s arms, shoulders, and chest.
    —Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    My hand and pen are not in plight,
    As they have been of yore.
    Thomas Vaux, 2d Baron Vaux Of Harrowden (1510–1566)
