Famous quotes containing the word shark:

    De god wat made shark must be one dam Ingin.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    They will tell you tough stories of sharks all over the Cape, which I do not presume to doubt utterly,—how they will sometimes upset a boat, or tear it in pieces, to get at the man in it. I can easily believe in the undertow, but I have no doubt that one shark in a dozen years is enough to keep up the reputation of a beach a hundred miles long.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear—
    And he shows them pearly white—
    Just a jackknife has Macheath, dear—
    And he keeps it out of sight.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
