Famous quotes containing the words mouse and/or pocket:

    It is as when a migrating army of mice girdles a forest of pines. The chopper fells trees from the same motive that the mouse gnaws them,—to get his living. You tell me that he has a more interesting family than the mouse. That is as it happens.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

No, it is more like being in a hotel room in Hoboken let us say, and just enough money in one’s pocket for another meal.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
