and on her daughter
They wash their feet in soda water"
- T.S. Eliot, "Wasteland" (199-201)
To keep them clean
- "WWI Australian soldier's song"
John 13:14-17 - "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."
