I am obnoxious to each carping tongue Who says my hand a needle better fits, A poet's pen all scorn I should thus wrong For such despite they cast on female wits; If what I do prove well, it won't advance, They'll say it's stolen, or else, it was by chance.
Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle which fits them all.Holmes, Sr., Oliver Wendell
Shakespeare alternated between musical surrenders to social prestige and magnificent fits of poetic remorse.laura riding

Rhyme, the rack of finest wits, That expresseth but by fits, True conceit, Spoiling senses of their treasure, Cozening judgement with a measure, But false weight. Wresting words from their true calling; Propping verse, for fear of falling To the ground. Jointing syllables, drowning letters, Fastening vowels, as with fetters They were bound!Ben Jonson

To apply a rule with natural ease, with judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the situation, is mastery.george pólya

We know no spectacle so ridiculous as the British public in one of its periodical fits of morality.
You fall in love with somebody who fits within what I call your 'love map,' an unconscious list of traits that you build in childhood as you grow up. And I also think that you gravitate to certain people, actually, with somewhat complementary brain systems.
For those whom God to ruin has designed He fits for fate, and first destroys their mind.john dryden
