The Sneetches and Other Stories Fear Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Story.Line)

Quote #4

But then a strange thing happened. / Why, those pants began to cry! (Scared.74-75)

It just proves that old saying, "empty pants are just as scared of you as you are of them." Just like Mom used to say.

Quote #5

And, now, we meet quite often, / Those empty pants and I, / And we never shake or tremble. (Scared.87-89)

Putting aside his fears, the narrator makes a lifelong friend. Well, shucks.
