NOSES
[ Also see Face ]

Jolly nose! there are fools who say drink hurts the sight,
  Such dullards know nothing about it;
    'Tis better with wine to extinguish the light
      Than live always in darkness without it.
      - quoted in William Harrison Ainsworth,
        Jack Sheppard (vol. I, p. 213),
        a paraphrase of Olivier Basselin's "Vaux-de-vire"

As clear and as manifest as the nose in a man's face.
      - Robert Burton, Anatomy of Melancholy
         (pt. III, sec. III, memb. 4, subsec. I)

Her only flair is in her nostrils.
      - Pauline Kael

Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.
      - Rush H. Limbaugh, III

Give me a man with a good allowance of nose, . . . when I want any good head-work done I choose a man--provided his education has been suitable--with a long nose.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I),
        related in "Notes on Noses", p. 43 (ed. 1847)

A gentleman with a pug nose is a contradiction in terms.
      - Edgar Allan Poe

Plain as a nose in a man's face.
      - Francois Rabelais,
        Works--The Author's Prologue to the First Book
