Famous quotes containing the words hat and/or red:

    I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    The frost was on the village roofs as white as ocean foam;
    The good red fires were burning bright in every ‘longshore home;
    The windows sparkled clear, and the chimneys volleyed out;
    And I vow we sniffed the victuals as the vessel went about.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
