8 QUOTES WITH «TRAMP»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word tramp.
1
Derek Blasberg
Temptation is as old as time; or at least, the history of temptation extends as far back as the moment Eve gave Adam that serpent's apple. But what sets the lady apart from the tramp is the ability to acknowledge she needs to clean up her act - and then, of course, the fact that she actually does clean up her act.
2
Charlie Chaplin
A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.
3
Mary Gordon
I don't have any great first job tales: I've never worked on a tramp steamer or in a coal mine or anything like that. I think the inspiration for my writing came largely from my father and the joy that life in books represented to me.

Tom Holland

7
Clemence Poesy
I had a grungy period and looked like a tramp for a very long time - my mum really hated it! I destroyed her entire '70s wardrobe by putting studs into everything - I thought I was really cool. But it's good to experiment - I even had dreadlocks at one point.

Beatrice Wood
