Famous quotes containing the words legs and/or front:

    Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Come up from the fields father, here’s a letter from our Pete,
    And come to the front door mother, here’s a letter from thy dear
    son.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
