He was in LOGIC a great critic, Profoundly skill'd in analytic; He could distinguish, and divide A hair 'twixt south, and south-west side: On either which he would dispute, Confute, change hands, and still confute, He'd undertake to prove, by force Of argument, a man's no horse; He'd prove a buzzard is no fowl, And that a lord may be an owl, A calf an alderman, a goose a justice, And rooks Committee-men and Trustees.

And from that luckless hour my tyrant fair Has led and turned me by a single hair.
Loose his beard, and hoary hair Stream'd, like a meteor, to the troubled air.thomas gray
Her head was bare; But for her native ornament of hair; Which in a simple knot was tied above, Sweet negligence, unheeded bait of love!
But, rising up, Robed in the long night of her deep hair, so To the open window moved.
We should teach our children to think no more of their bodies when dead than they do of their hair when cut off, or of their old clothes when they have done with them.George MacDonald

There the patient hand still knocketh, And with every patient watching, With the sad eyes true and tender, With the glory-crowned hair, Still a God is waiting there.
Since we have received everything from the Gods, and it is right to pay the giver some tithe of his gifts, we pay such a tithe of possessions in votive offering, of bodies in gifts of (hair and) adornment, and of life in sacrifices.
