Wine and Chocolate The Perfect Couple

Famous quotes containing the words couple, perfect, wine and/or chocolate:

    To his offspring both female and male,
    “From your children, my dears,
    In a couple of years
    May evolve a professor at Yale.”

    Good as is discourse, silence is better, and shames it. The length of the discourse indicates the distance of thought betwixt the speaker and the hearer. If they were at a perfect understanding in any part, no words would be necessary thereon. If at one in all parts, no words would be suffered.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Who gives to Aristaeus honey;
    Or wine to Bacchus, or Triptolemus
    Earth’s fruits, or apples to Alcinous?
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    The man who invented Eskimo Pie made a million dollars, so one is told, but E.E. Cummings, whose verse has been appearing off and on for three years now, and whose experiments should not be more appalling to those interested in poetry than the experiment of surrounding ice-cream with a layer of chocolate was to those interested in soda fountains, has hardly made a dent in the doughy minds of our so-called poetry lovers.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
