Just for a handful of silver he left us, Just for a riband to stick in his coat.
Just for a handful of silver he left us, Just for a riband to stick in his coat.Robert Browning
I am no prophetand here's no great matter; I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker, And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker, And in short, I was afraid.
Grab your coat, and get your hat,
Leave your worry on the doorstep,
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street.
I have made my song a coat Covered with embroideries Out of old mythologies From heel to throat; But the fools caught it, Wore it in the world's eyes As though they'd wrought it. Song, let them take it, For there's more enterprise In walking naked.
An aged man is but a paltry thing, A tattered coat upon a stick, unless Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing For every tatter in its mortal dress.
It is seen as the application of a systematic “scientific method” involving wearing a white coat and being dull. I feel that too many young people come into science with this view, and that too many fields degenerate into the kind of work which results: automatic crank-turning and data-collecting of the sort which Kuhn calls “normal science” and Rutherford “stamp-collecting”. In fact, the creation of new science is a creative act, literally, and people who are not creative are not very good at it.phillip warren anderson
The maid said, "Can I take your coat?" She said, "No, I don't think so. I'm a little cold." Later Edie told me the real reason she didn't want to take her coat off was that she wasn't wearing any clothes under it.edie sedgwick
Without the heroic, man has no meaning; without the economic, he has no sense. Economic man is most likely to be economic woman a good wife, pulling the coat tails of her heroic husband, checking his extravagances of speech and action with words of caution and good sense. But without the heroic coat tails to pull, life for both of them would be dull and savorless indeed.kenneth boulding
After us they’ll fly in hot air balloons, coat styles will change, perhaps they’ll discover a sixth sense and cultivate it, but life will remain the same, a hard life full of secrets, but happy. And a thousand years from now man will still be sighing, “Oh! Life is so hard!” and will still, like now, be afraid of death and not want to die.Anton Chekhov
HOW happy is the little stone That rambles in the road alone, And does n’t care about careers, And exigencies never fears; Whose coat of elemental brown A passing universe put on; And independent as the sun, Associates or glows alone, Fulfilling absolute decree In casual simplicity.
I say I like your coat Her thank-you tugs my heart afloat I nearly didn't hear for Seagulls screaming kiss her, kiss herandy partridge
Want is a growing giant whom the coat of Have was never large enough to cover.ralph waldo emerson
A wolf sheds its coat every year, but his nature never changes.
The royal kingcup bold Dares not don his coat of gold.edwin arnold
He shivered. His coat was thin, and it was obvious he would not get his kiss, which he found puzzling. The manly heroes of the penny dreadfuls and shilling novels never had these problems getting kissed.
Leopard coat does not belong on humans.
How his eyes languish! how his thoughts adore That painted coat, which Joseph never wore! He shows, on holidays, a sacred pin. That touch'd the ruff, that touched Queen Bess' chin.Edward Young
Old Grimes is dead, that good old man, We ne'er shall see him more; He used to wear a long black coat All button'd down before.
Old Rose is dead, that good old man, We ne'er shall see him more; He used to wear an old blue coat All buttoned down before.
Old Abram Brown is dead and gone, You'll never see him more; He used to wear a long brown coat That buttoned down before.
John Lee is dead, that good old man, We ne'er shall see him more: He used to wear an old drab coat All buttoned down before.
