Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.
When people call this beast to mind, They marvel more and more At such a little tail behind, So large a trunk before.
We know that the tail must wag the dog, for the horse is drawn by the cart; But the Devil whoops, as he whooped of old: 'It's clever, but is it Art?'
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!
And he went back through the Wet Wild Woods, waving his wild tail and walking by his wild lone.But he never told anybody.
This is a Tale about a tail — a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel, and his name was Nutkin.beatrix potter
If you take a bale of hay and tie it to the tail of a mule and then strike a match and set the bale of hay on fire, and if you then compare the energy expended shortly thereafter by the mule with the energy expended by yourself in the striking of the match, you will understand the concept of amplification.william shockley
This is the third time that, in the course of six years, during which I have had the lead of the Opposition in the House of Commons, I have stormed the Treasury Benches: twice, fruitlessly, the third time with a tin kettle to my tail which rendered the race hopeless. You cannot, therefore, be surprised, that I am a little wearied of these barren victories, which like Alma , Inkerman, and Balaclava , may be glorious but are certainly nothing more.benjamin disraeli
When you live alone you no longer know what it is to tell a story: the plausible disappears at the same time as the friends.

To frame the little animal, provide All the gay hues that wait on female pride: Let Nature guide thee; sometimes golden wire The shining bellies of the fly require; The peacock's plumes thy tackle must not fail, Nor the dear purchase of the sable's tail.john gay

Talk of the wolf and his tail appears.
For angling-rod he took a sturdy oak; For line, a cable that in storm ne'er broke; His hook was such as heads the end of pole To pluck down house ere fire consumes it whole; This hook was bated with a dragon's tail, And then on rock he stood to bob for whale.
His angle-rod made of a sturdy oak; His line, a cable which in storms ne'er broke; His hook he baited with a dragon's tail, And sat upon a rock, and bobb'd for whale.
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
Like Æsop's fox, when he had lost his tail, would have all his fellow foxes cut off theirs.robert burton
It's unique because it doesn't look like a comet with the typical tail; it looks like a cloud. It's not what you would normally see at all ... With the naked eye, it looks like a star or planet, but with binoculars it's really weird looking; it doesn't happen every day.

Said the little Eohippus, "I am going to be a horse, And on my middle fingernails To run my earthly course! * * * I'm going to have a flowing tail! I'm going to have a mane! I'm going to stand fourteen hands high On the Psychozoic plain!"
