Famous quotes containing the words head and, anatomy, head and/or neck:

    The right moment wears a full head of hair: when it has been missed, you can’t get it back; it’s bald in the back of the head and never turns around.

    Man is a shrewd inventor, and is ever taking the hint of a new machine from his own structure, adapting some secret of his own anatomy in iron, wood, and leather, to some required function in the work of the world.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    All men are partially buried in the grave of custom, and of some we see only the crown of the head above ground. Better are the physically dead, for they more lively rot. Even virtue is no longer such if it be stagnant. A man’s life should be constantly as fresh as this river. It should be the same channel, but a new water every instant.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    And graven with diamonds in letters plain
    There is written her fair neck round about:
    “Noli me tangere for Caesar’s I am,
    And wild for to hold though I seem tame.”
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)
