America is not a blanket woven from one thread, one color, one cloth.
— Jesse Jackson

I reached for sleep and drew it round me like a blanket muffling pain and thought together in the merciful dark.
Mary Stewart blankets quote

The cool kindliness of sheets, that soon smooth away trouble; and the rough male kiss of blankets.
— Rupert Brooke

The abilities of man must fall short on one side or the other, like too scanty a blanket when you are abed. If you pull it upon your shoulders, your feet are left bare; if you thrust it down to your feet, your shoulders are uncovered.
— Sir William Temple

America is not like a blanket: one piece of unbroken cloth, the same color, the same texture, the same size. America is more like a quilt: many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes, all woven and held together by a common thread.
— blankets quotation by Jesse Jackson
