Famous quotes containing the word hairs:

    I believe in the total depravity of inanimate things ... the elusiveness of soap, the knottiness of strings, the transitory nature of buttons, the inclination of suspenders to twist and of hooks to forsake their lawful eyes, and cleave only unto the hairs of their hapless owner’s head.
    Katharine Walker (1840–1916)

    Old married people look so much alike that they have the same number of hairs in their ears.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Flouncing your skirts, you blueness of joy, you flirt of
    politeness,
    You leap, you intelligence, essence of wheelness with silvery nose,
    And your platinum clocks of excitement stir like the hairs of a
    fern.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
