Famous quotes containing the word yellow:

    “Never shall a young man,
    Thrown into despair
    By those great honey-coloured
    Ramparts at your ear,
    Love you for yourself alone
    And not your yellow hair.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white
    beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your
    voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit
    single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity? and
    will you yet call yourself young?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Tom: All right, boys. C’mon. Why don’t you say I’m a yellow belly and a big mouth at that?
    Shep: You yellow? Who thinks you’re yellow? Did you hear what he said? A guy who’s got the nerve to marry? That’s more than Flash Gordon ever did.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)
