Famous quotes containing the word knock:

    I would not knock old fellows in the dust
    But there lay Captain Carpenter on his back
    His weapons were the old heart in his bust
    And a blade shook between rotten teeth alack.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    Not many sounds in life ... exceed in interest a knock at the door.
    Charles Lamb (1775–1834)

    The knocking out of a pipe can be made almost as important as the smoking of it, especially if there are nervous people in the room. A good, smart knock of a pipe against a tin wastebasket and you will have a neurasthenic out of his chair and into the window sash in no time.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
