Famous quotes containing the words china and/or han:

    It all ended with the circuslike whump of a monstrous box on the ear with which I knocked down the traitress who rolled up in a ball where she had collapsed, her eyes glistening at me through her spread fingers—all in all quite flattered, I think. Automatically, I searched for something to throw at her, saw the china sugar bowl I had given her for Easter, took the thing under my arm and went out, slamming the door.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Certes this dream, which ye han met tonight,
    Cometh of the great superfluity
    Of your redde colera,
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
