Famous quotes containing the word contents:

    Such as boxed
    Their feelings properly, complete to tags
    A box for dark men and a box for Other
    Would often find the contents had been scrambled.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    To be, contents his natural desire;
    He asks no Angel’s wing, no Seraph’s fire;
    But thinks, admitted to that equal sky,
    His faithful dog shall bear him company.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Conversation ... is like the table of contents of a dull book.... All the greatest subjects of human thought are proudly displayed in it. Listen to it for three minutes, and you ask yourself which is more striking, the emphasis of the speaker or his shocking ignorance.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)
