For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
As many were astonished at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: Soshall hesprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.Bible (Old Testament)
Blind mouths! that scarcethemselves know how to hold A sheep-hook.john milton
And now by the side of the Black and the Baltic deep, And deathful-grinning mouths of the fortress, flames The blood-red blossom of war with a heart of fire.Tennyson
We can spit on Bertie Ahern till our mouths run dry, but he didn’t invent the amorality of our public culture. He was never a large enough figure to be able to shape the way Irish society thinks and feels. He was just an artful dodger, a skilled exploiter of the opportunities created by widespread tolerance for ingratiating chancers.bertie ahern
The city, that monster with a hundred mouths and a thousand ears, a monster that knows nothing but says everything, had written me off.
"I think both [Killers frontman] Brandon [Flowers] and I are alike because we both use too much hair product and run our mouths way more than our bands like."brandon flowers
Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.alfred hitchcock
Martin himself had of course a serious intention and must, for all his motley, be regarded as a heroic figure. Nor have I any sympathy with those who make prim mouths at him for introducing scurrility into a theological debate, for debate was precisely what the bishops had suppressed. Those who refuse to let their opponents dispute have no right to complain if they hear instead lewd catcalls in the streets; in a sense, it is what they have chosen.martin marprelate
When it is known that Plato put his own words in Socrates' mouth (Aristotle says this) there should be no reason to doubt that he could have put his own words into other mouths too.
It is the glory and good of Art That Art remains the one way possible Of speaking truth, to mouths like mine, at least.Robert Browning
Both sexes allow men dentists inside our mouths, but, well, have you ever let a man who is a dental hygienist inside your mouth? The man must earn his way to our private places in a way not required of a woman--he must become the doctor or the dentist, or forget it.warren farrell
The very odd thing about sagas [...] is that they very rarely mention dry mouths and full bladders.david gemmell
His words were simple words enough, And yet he used them so, That what in other mouths was rough In his seemed musical and low.james russell lowell
What did you expect when you unbound the gag that muted those black mouths? That they would chant your praises ? Did you think that when these heads that out fathers had forcibly bowed down to the ground were raised again, you would find adoration in their eyes ?
I did pluck allegiance from men's hearts, Loud shouts and salutations from their mouths, Even in the presence of the crowned king.william shakespeare

I will ask him for my place again; he shall tell me, I am a drunkard! Had I as many mouths as Hydra, such an answer would stop them all. To be now a sensible man, by and by a fool, and presently a beast!william shakespeare
