Teeth

Famous quotes containing the word teeth:

    No spoon has yet destroyed a mouth, but the knife of war cuts portions that are hard to swallow. Perhaps the big mouths of the privileged are able to cope with them, but they dull the teeth of the little people and ruin their stomachs.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    These hunt, as they have done
    But with claws and teeth grown perfect,

    More deadly than they can believe.
    James Dickey (b. 1923)

    A good aphorism is too hard for the teeth of time and is not eaten up by all the centuries, even though it serves as food for every age: hence it is the greatest paradox in literature, the imperishable in the midst of change, the nourishment which—like salt—is always prized, but which never loses its savor as salt does.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
