Famous quotes containing the words thrust and/or jaw:

    Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Altarwise by owl-light in the half-way house
    The gentleman lay graveward with his furies;
    Abaddon in the hangnail cracked from Adam,
    And, from his fork, a dog among the fairies,
    The atlas-eater with a jaw for news,
    Bit out the mandrake with to-morrow’s scream.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
