Snails Lay Eggs

Famous quotes containing the words snails, lay and/or eggs:

    little snails at the back
    of the knee building bon-
    fires ...
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    And salted was my food, and my repose,
    Salted and sobered, too, by the bird’s voice
    Speaking for all who lay under the stars,
    Soldiers and poor, unable to rejoice.
    Edward Thomas (1878–1917)

    One of our defects as a nation is a tendency to use what have been called “weasel words.” When a weasel sucks eggs the meat is sucked out of the egg. If you use a “weasel word” after another there is nothing left of the other.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)
