“A lie will easily get you out of a scrape, and yet, strangely and beautifully, rapture possesses you when you have taken the scrape and left out the lie.”
Charles Edward Montague
“"Upon shaving off one's beard." The scissors cut the long-grown hair; the razor scrapes the remnant fuzz. Small-jawed, weak-chinned, bug-eyed, I stare at the forgotten boy I was.”
“Scraping the bottom of the barrel”
“I heard a sound as of scraping tripe, / And putting apples wondrous ripe, / Into a cider- press's gripe.”
“According to one critic, my works looked like scraped billboards. I went to look at the billboards and decided that more billboards should be scraped.”
“I laughed and I scraped it off. Then I thought that would be a great idea, to get somebody to go to everybody's house and write 'Go Carl Edwards, No. 99.'”
“One could drive a prairie schooner through any part of his argument and never scrape against a fact.”
David F. Houston
