Life at the greatest and best is but a froward child, that must be humored and coaxed a little till it falls asleep, and then all the care is over.Oliver Goldsmith
Clean is a phrase meaning neat or not dirty.
- Let it be observed, that slovenliness is no part of religion; that neither this nor any text of Scripture, condemns neatness of apparel. Certainly this is a duty, not a sin, “Cleanliness is, indeed, next to godliness.”*
- John Wesley, Sermon xciii, ‘on Dress’. *This phrase is probably Hebrew in origin.
