Famous quotes containing the word thread:

    It may be the more
    That no line of her writing have I,
    Nor a thread of her hair,
    No mark of her late time as dame in her dwelling, whereby
    I may picture her there.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. It’s another thing, though, to hold up that cloth for inspection.
    John Gregory Brown (20th century)

    First you find a little thread, a little thread leads you to a string, and the string leads you to a rope. And from the rope you hang by the ... neck.
    —A.I. (Albert Isaac)
