Firebugs dragging their gasoline bottles Are approaching the Academy of Arts, with a grin. And so, instead of embracing them, Let us demand the freedom of the elbow To knock the bottles out of their filthy hands. Even the most blockheaded bureaucrat, Provided he loves peace, Is a greater lover of the arts Than any so-called art-lover Who loves the arts of war.
There must be something solemn, serious, and tender about any attitude which we denominate religious. If glad, it must not Grin or snicker; if sad, it must not scream or curse. It is precisely as being solemn experiences that I wish to interest you in religious experiences.
"The birds can fly, an' why can't I? Must we give in," says he with a Grin, "That the bluebird an' phœbe are smarter 'n we be?"john townsend trowbridge
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt; And every Grin, so merry, draws one out.john wolcot
How doth the little crocodile Improve his shining tail, And pour the waters of the Nile on every golden scale! How cheerfully he seems to Grin, How neatly spreads his claws, And welcomes little fishes in, With gently smiling jaws!Lewis Carroll
Rucker sings of loss and despair as if they've left him shell-shocked. But Hootie -- born at frat parties and still a bar band at heart -- know how to deliver beers-and-tears material, and the occasional anti-racist slam, with a smile. The same sly Grin crept into songs of frustration -- country writer Radney Foster's "A Fine Line" and the Who's "I Can't Explain." But Rucker is no more Charley Pride than Bryan is Pete Townshend.darius rucker
I really do believe I can accomplish a great deal with a big Grin, I know some people find that disconcerting, but that doesn't matter.beverly sills
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt,And every Grin so merry draws one out.john wolcot
And the Devil did Grin, for his darling sin Is pride that apes humility.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I know it is a sin For me to sit and Grin At him here; But the old three-cornered hat, And the breeches, and all that, Are so queer!
Your lean jaws Grin with. Lash Your itch and quailing, nude greed of the flesh.james joyce
Somebody said that it couldn't be done, But he with a chuckle replied "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one wouldn't say so till he'd tried. he buckled right in with the trace of a Grin his face.

I know it is a sin For me to sit and Grin At him here; But the old three-cornered hat And the breeches and all that Are so queer.
Death, death; oh, amiable, lovely death! Come, Grin on me, and I will think thou smilest.
"Very astonishing indeed! strange thing!" (Turning the Dumpling round, rejoined the King), "'Tis most extraordinary, then, all this is; It beats Penetti's conjuring all to pieces; Strange I should never of a Dumpling dream! But, Goody, tell me where, where, where's the Seam?" "Sire, there's no Seam," quoth she; "I never knew That folks did Apple-Dumplings sew." "No!" cried the staring Monarch with a Grin; "How, how the devil got the Apple in?"john wolcot
He saw a cottage with a double coach-house, A cottage of gentility! And the Devil did Grin, for his darling sin Is pride that apes humility.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
What valour were it, when a cur doth Grin, For one to thrust his hand between his teeth, When he might spurn him with his foot, away?william shakespeare
All nature wears one universal Grin.
“Which alternative is worse, I wonder?” she said. “To deny death and thus risk never being wholly alive, or to face oblivion squarely and risk paralysis by dread?” “Nobody knows,” I said. “It’s ambiguous.” “If I ever get to be God,” she said, unleashing the Grin of the person who’d invented Largesse, “my first act will be to make ambiguity illegal.”
