Famous quotes containing the words bentley and/or thomas:

    He followed in his father’s footsteps, but his gait was somewhat erratic.
    —Nicolas Bentley (1907–1978)

    Were that enough, bone, blood, and sinew,
    The twisted brain, the fair-formed loin,
    Groping for matter under the dog’s plate,
    Man should be cured of distemper.
    For all there is to give I offer:
    Crumbs, barn, and halter.
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
