Famous quotes containing the word dogs:
“Its dogs that bite that do not show their teeth.”
“I can forgive even that wrong of wrongs,
Those undreamt accidents that have made me
Seeing that Fame has perished this long while,
Being but a part of ancient ceremony
Notorious, till all my priceless things
Are but a post the passing dogs defile.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)

—James Gorman (b. 1949)
