Famous quotes containing the words jones and/or davy:
“There used to be two kinds of kisses. First when girls were kissed and deserted; second, when they were engaged. Now theres a third kind, where the man is kissed and deserted. If Mr. Jones of the nineties bragged hed kissed a girl, everyone knew he was through with her. If Mr. Jones of 1919 brags the same everyone knows its because he cant kiss her any more. Given a decent start any girl can beat a man nowadays.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
“The wealth and prosperity of the country are only the comeliness of the body, the fullness of the flesh and fat; but the spirit is independent of them; it requires only muscle, bone and nerve for the true exercise of its functions. We cannot lose our liberty, because we cannot cease to think.”
—Humphry, Sir Davy (17781829)
