Famous quotes containing the word elephant:

    Even the elephant carries but a small trunk on his journeys. The perfection of traveling is to travel without baggage.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I asked my mother for fifty cents
    To see the elephant jump the fence.
    He jumped so high he reached the sky,
    And didn’t get back till the Fourth of July.
    —Unknown. I Asked My Mother (l. 1–4)

    to his eyes, Funnyface Or Elephant as yet
    Mean nothing. His distinction between Me and Us
    Is a matter of taste; his seasons are Dry and Wet;
    He thinks as his mouth does.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
