Famous quotes containing the word rattling:

    Small debts are like small shot; they are rattling on every side, and can scarcely be escaped without a wound: great debts are like cannon; of loud noise, but little danger.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    You that do search for every purling spring
    Which from the ribs of old Parnassus flows,
    And every flower, not sweet perhaps, which grows
    Near thereabouts into your poesy wring;
    You that do dictionary’s method bring
    Into your rhymes, running in rattling rows;
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

It kind of made him drunk, as you may say, and he didn’t know nothing at all the rest of the day, and preached a prayer meeting sermon that night that give him a rattling ruputation, because the oldest man in the world couldn’t a understood it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
