What are tips?

Famous quotes containing the word tips:

    A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by graces
    More commonly it’s modeled of baling wire and acne.
    More commonly it wheezes and tips over.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    Romeo. Lady, by yonder blessed moon I vow,
    That tips with silver all these fruit tree tops—
    Juliet. O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon,
    That monthly changes in her circled orb,
    Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
