Famous quotes containing the word cup:

    Sisters define their rivalry in terms of competition for the gold cup of parental love. It is never perceived as a cup which runneth over, rather a finite vessel from which the more one sister drinks, the less is left for the others.
    Elizabeth Fishel (20th century)

    Sunday morning may be cheery enough, with its extra cup of coffee and litter of Sunday newspapers, but there is always hanging over it the ominous threat of 3 P.M., when the sun gets around to the back windows and life stops dead in its tracks.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    In poorer lands
    No one touches the water of life.
    It has no taste
    And though it refreshes absolutely
    It is a cup that must also pass
    Until everybody
    Gets some advantage....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
