Famous quotes containing the word flap:

    Let Sporus tremble—‘What? That thing of silk,
    Sporus, that mere white curd of ass’s milk?
    Satire or sense, alas, can Sporus feel,
    Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?’
    Yet let me flap this bug with gilded wings,
    This painted child of dirt, that stinks and stings;
    Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys,
    Yet wit ne’er tastes, and beauty ne’er enjoys:
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
