And what can we expect if we haven't any dinner, But to lose our teeth and eyelashes and keep on growing thinner?
Battle, n. A method of untying with the teeth a political knot that would not yield to the tongue.Ambrose Gwinett Bierce
What I tell my students is there are three places where poems must happen and a poem must happen in these three places simultaneously for it to be a good poem. It happens between the ears, that's intelligence; behind the left nipple, heart and feeling; between the tongue and teeth, the noise it makes.Douglas Eaglesham Dunn
You ought to take the bull between the teeth.
This man,Comrades, has a nice smile, but he has iron teeth.Alfred Whitney Griswold
They will steal the very teeth out of your mouth as you walk through the streets – I know it from experience.william arabin
I do not believe that all of these problems can be solved just by a new law, or something that someone says, with teeth in it. For example, when we got into the Little Rock thing, it was not my province to talk about segregation or desegregation. I had the job of supporting a federal court that had issued a proper order under the Constitution, and where compliance was prevented by action that was unlawful.
If you [Americans] behave with disrespect – even just a little bit – [the Iranian people] will punch you in the mouth so hard that all your devouring teeth will fall off.mohammad emami-kashani
The cruelest lies are often told in silence. A man may have sat in a room for hours and not opened his teeth, and yet come out of that room a disloyal friend or a vile calumniator. And how many loves have perished because, from pride, or spite, or diffidence, or that unmanly shame which withholds a man from daring to betray emotion, a lover, at the critical point of the relation, has but hung his head and held his tongue?Robert Louis Stevenson
When science shall have effectually demonstrated to us the origin of matter, and proved the fallacy of the occultists and old philosophers who held (as their descendants now hold) that matter is but one of the correlations of spirit, then will the world of skeptics have a right to reject the old Wisdom, or throw the charge of obscenity in the teeth of the old religions.Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
I drug your ghost across the country, and we plotted out my death. Every city and memory we whispered "Here is where you rest." Well I was determined in Chicago but I dug my teeth into my knees And I settled for a telephone, sang into your machine: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine."conor oberst
No academy could have given me all I discovered by getting my teeth into the exhibitions, the shop windows, and the museums of Paris . Beginning with the market – where, for lack of money, I bought only a piece of a long cucumber – the workman in his blue overall, the most ardent followers of Cubism, everything showed a definite feeling for proportion, clarity, an accurate sense of form, of a more painterly kind of painting, even in the canvases of second-rate artists.
'Tis mean for empty praise of wit to write, As fopplings grin to snow their teeth are white.
If you [Americans] behave with disrespect – even just a little bit – [the Iranian people] will punch you in the mouth so hard that all your devouring teeth will fall off.
Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
There's no better way to memorialize the Santorum scandal than by attaching his name to a sex act that would make his big, white teeth fall out of his big, empty head.
A drunkard clasp his teeth and not undo 'em, To suffer wet damnation to run through 'em.
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
The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind.
I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
Mad is the man who is forever gritting his teeth against that granite block, complete and changeless, of the past.
I killed the President because he was the enemy of the good people, the good working people. I am not sorry for my crime. (through clenched teeth) I am sorry I could not see my father.
