FEET
[ Also see Footsteps Shoemaking ]

My feet, they haul me Round the House,
  They hoist me up the Stairs;
    I only have to steer them, and
      They Ride me Everywheres.
      - Frank Gelett Burgess, My Feet

There is as much expression in the feet as in the hands.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

So lightly walks, she not one mark imprints,
  Nor brushes off the dews, nor soils the tints.
      - Charles Churchill

And the prettiest foot! Oh, if a man could but fasten his eyes to her feet, as they steal in and out, and play at bo-peep under her petticoats!
      - William Congreve, Love for Love
         (act I, sc. 1)

It is a suggestive idea to track those worn feet backward through all the paths they have trodden ever since they were the tender and rosy little feet of a baby, and (cold as they now are) were kept warm in his mother's hand.
      - Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun
         (vol. I, ch. XXI)

Better a bare foote then none.
  [Better a barefoot than none.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Her pretty feet
  Like snails did creep
    A little out, and then,
      As if they played at bo-peep
        Did soon draw in agen.
      - Robert Herrick, Upon her Feet

As if the wind, not she, did walk,
  Nor pressed a flower, nor bowed a stalk.
      - Ben Jonson

Footprints on the sands of time.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Feet that run on willing errands!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hiawatha
         (pt. X, Hiawatha's Wooing, l. 33)

'Tis all one as if they should make the Standard for the measure, we call a Foot, a Chancellor's Foot; what an uncertain Measure would this be! one Chancellor has a long Foot, another a short Foot, a Third an indifferent foot. 'Tis the same thing in the Chancellor's Conscience.
      - John Selden, Table Talk--Equity

Dance on the sands, and yet no footing seen.
      - William Shakespeare

Nay, her foot speaks.
      - William Shakespeare

So light a foot will ne'er wear out the everlasting flint.
      - William Shakespeare

Here comes the lady. O, so light a foot
  Will ne'er wear out the everlasting flint.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, vi)

There's language in her eye, her cheek, her lip;
  Nay, her foot speaks.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Ulysses at IV, v)

O happy earth,
  Whereon thy innocent feet doe ever tread!
      - Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene
         (bk. I, canto X, st. 9)

Her feet beneath her petticoat,
  Like little mice, stole in and out,
    As if they feared the light:
      But oh! she dances such a way!
        No sun upon an Easter day
          Is half so fine a sight.
      - Sir John Suckling, Ballad Upon a Wedding
         (st. 8)

Feet like sunny gems on our English green.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

The flower she touched on dipped and rose.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

And feet like sunny gems on an English green.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Maud (pt. V, st. 2)
