Famous quotes containing the word bounce:

    Trade and commerce, if they were not made of India-rubber, would never manage to bounce over the obstacles which legislators are continually putting in their way; and, if one were to judge these men wholly by the effects of their actions and not partly by their intentions, they would deserve to be classed and punished with those mischievous persons who put obstructions on the railroads.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Part of the responsibility of being a parent is to arrange situations in children’s lives so they are able to meet crises with a reasonable chance of coping successfully with them.... Parents who believe children are unharmed by crises and will simply bounce back in time seriously misunderstand children.
    Donald C. Medeiros (20th century)

    You are the food,
    you are the tooth, you are the husband,
    light, light, sieving through the screen
    whereon I bounce my big body at you
    like shoes after a wedding car.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
