Famous quotes containing the word creeping:

    Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    As wild geese that the creeping fowler eye,
    Or russet-pated choughs, many in sort,
    Rising and cawing at the gun’s report,
    Sever themselves and madly sweep the sky—
    So at his sight away his fellows fly.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The whining schoolboy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school.
