Famous quotes containing the word moth:

    Like vinegar on a wound is one who sings songs to a heavy heart. Like a moth in clothing or a worm in wood, sorrow gnaws at the human heart.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 25:20.

    Hurt no living thing:
    Ladybird, nor butterfly,
    Nor moth with dusty wing,
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    ... until the shopkeeper plants his boot in our eyes,
    and unties our bone and is finished with the case,
    and turns to the next customer, forgetting our face
    or how we knelt at the yellow bulb with sighs
    like moth wings for a short while in a small place.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
