Famous quotes containing the word locks:

    Many a kiss, both odd and even;
    Many a glance, too, has been sent
    From out the eye, love’s firmament;
    Many a jest told of the keys betraying
    This night, and locks picked; yet we’re not a-Maying!
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    Nodding, its great head rattling like a gourd,
    And locks like seaweed strung on the stinking stone,
    The nightmare stumbles past,
    Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989)

    He’s made a harp of her breast-bane,
    Whose sound wad melt a heart of stane.

    He’s ta’en three locks o’ her yellow hair,
    And wi’ them strung his harp sae rare.
    Unknown. Binnorie; or, The Two Sisters (l. 41–44)
