Famous quotes containing the word bones:

    But the bones didn’t try
    The door; they halted helpless on the landing,
    Waiting for things to happen in their favor.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    They seldom looked happy. They passed one another without a word in the elevator, like silent shades in hell, hell-bent on their next look from a handsome stranger. Their next rush from a popper. The next song that turned their bones to jelly and left them all on the dance floor with heads back, eyes nearly closed, in the ecstasy of saints receiving the stigmata.
    Andrew Holleran (b. 1943)

    And the bones sang chirping
    With the burden of the grasshopper,
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
