Famous quotes containing the words bag and/or scum:
“Have you seen but a bright lily grow
Before rude hands have touchd it?
Have you markd but the fall of the snow
Before the soil hath smutchd it?
Have you felt the wool of the beaver,
Or swans down ever?
Or have smelt of the bud of the brier,
Or the nard in the fire?
Or have tasted the bag of the bee?
O so white, O so soft, O so sweet is she!”
—Ben Jonson (15721637)
“The people of this country are too tolerant. Theres no other country in the world where theyd allow it... After all we built up this country and then we allow a lot of foreigners, the scum of Europe, the offscourings of Polish ghettos to come and run it for us.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
