Famous quotes containing the word birth:

    Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Marriage is like a war. There are moments of chivalry and gallantry that attend the victorious advances and strategic retreats, the birth or death of children, the momentary conquest of loneliness, the sacrifice that ennobles him who makes it. But mostly there are the long dull sieges, the waiting, the terror and boredom. Women understand this better than men; they are better able to survive attrition.
    Helen Hayes (1900–1993)

    I am being given, if I may venture the expression, birth into death, such is my impression. The feet are clear already, of the great cunt of existence.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
