Boa Quotations

Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!
Allen Ginsberg

Right whales, for all their size, are surprisingly athletic. They roll, they slap their flukes, they lift their heads out of the water in a move known as a spy hop. They find playthings and are particularly fond of swimming repeatedly through clumps of seaweed, which slides over them like a feathered boa.
Tim Cahill

He and I were about as compatible as a rat and a boa constrictor.
