Famous quotes containing the words limbs and/or upper:

    “Find meat on bones that soon have none,
    And drink in the two milked crags,
    The merriest marrow and the dregs
    Before the ladies’ breasts are hags
    And the limbs are torn....”
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Surely you wouldn’t grudge the poor old man
    Some humble way to save his self-respect.
    He added, if you really care to know,
    He meant to clear the upper pasture, too.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
