Famous quotes containing the word clap:

    The Danaan children laugh, in cradles of wrought gold,
    And clap their hands together, and half close their eyes,
    For they will ride the North when the ger-eagle flies,
    With heavy whitening wings, and a heart fallen cold....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    You can’t clap with only one hand.
    Chinese proverb.

    In matter of commerce the fault of the Dutch
    Is offering too little and asking too much.
    The French are with equal advantage content,
    So we clap on Dutch bottoms just twenty per cent.
    George Canning (1770–1827)
