Famous quotes containing the word snap:

    The basis of political economy is non-interference. The only safe rule is found in the self-adjusting meter of demand and supply. Do not legislate. Meddle, and you snap the sinews with your sumptuary laws.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, “You must be hiding something shameful.” And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy who’s decided to “clam up.”
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    The worst and best are both inclined
    To snap like vixens at the truth.
    But, O, beware the middle mind
    That purrs and never shows a tooth!
    Elinor Wylie (1885–1928)
