7 Teeth Quotes from Literature

The venom clamours of a jealous woman
Poisons more deadly than a mad dog's tooth. ~ The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare People who love downy peaches are apt not to think of the stone, and sometimes jar their teeth terribly against it. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "Pshaw, my dear fellow, what do the public, the great unobservant public, who could hardly tell a weaver by his tooth or a compositor by his left thumb, care about the finer shades of analysis and deduction!" ~ The Adventure of the Copper Beeches by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!" ~ King Lear by William Shakespeare All that stirring of old instincts which at stated periods drives men out from the sounding cities to forest and plain to kill things by chemically propelled leaden pellets, the blood lust, the joy to kill--all this was Buck's, only it was infinitely more intimate. He was ranging at the head of the pack, running the wild thing down, the living meat, to kill with his own teeth and wash his muzzle to the eyes in warm blood. ~ The Call of the Wild by Jack London There is a chill in the air after dark, and we had all drawn close to the blaze. The night was moonless, but there were some stars, and one could see for a little distance across the plain. Well, suddenly out of the darkness, out of the night, there swooped something with a swish like an aeroplane. The whole group of us were covered for an instant by a canopy of leathery wings, and I had a momentary vision of a long, snake-like neck, a fierce, red, greedy eye, and a great snapping beak, filled, to my amazement, with little, gleaming teeth. ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "His neighbor is a tooth-drawer. That bag at his girdle is full of the teeth that he drew at Winchester fair. I warrant that there are more sound ones than sorry, for he is quick at his work and a trifle dim in the eye." ~ The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
