Famous quotes containing the word jump:

    Well, you look so pretty in it
    Honey, can I jump on it sometime?
    Yes, I just wanna see
    If it’s really that expensive kind
    You know it balances on your head
    Just like a mattress balances
    On a bottle of wine
    Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    Holy Rollers and Jumpers come out,
    And they holler, they jump and they shout,
    Joe Hill (1879–1914)

    I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
    And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
    He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
    And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
