The executioner is, I believe, very expert; and my neck is very slender
To be engaged in opposing wrong affords...but a slender guarantee for being right.
William E. Gladstone
He had a slender nose. He had very slim features.
J. M. Roberts
Such a slender moon, going up and up, Waxing so fast from night to night, And swelling like an orange flower-bud, bright, Fated, methought, to round as to a golden cup, And hold to my two lips life's best of wine.
My chance, when it came, was due, literally, to the fact that I was slender.... You cannot make an opera audience believe that a man will endanger his soul, and commit robbery and murder for a very stout lady's sake.
We say of the oak, How grand of girth! Of the willow we say, How slender! And yet to the soft grass clothing the earth How slight is the praise we render.
