Famous quotes containing the word dragging:

    I saw the strange position of his hands
    Up at his shoulders, dragging yellow strands
    Of wire with something in it from men to men.
    “You here?” I said. “Where aren’t you nowadays?...”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    When I had reached my term, I looked like a rat dragging a stolen egg.
    Colette [Sidonie Gabrielle Colette] (1873–1954)

    Her man falling asleep,
    limp from dragging a plow sunk in mud,
    the slattern curses the rains,
    her pleasures unfinished.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
