Famous quotes containing the words birth and, life, birth and/or early:

    The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    The demand for equal rights in every vocation of life is just and fair; but, after all, the most vital right is the right to love and be loved.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    There is a certain class of people who prefer to say that their fathers came down in the world through their own follies than to boast that they rose in the world through their own industry and talents. It is the same shabby-genteel sentiment, the same vanity of birth which makes men prefer to believe that they are degenerated angels rather than elevated apes.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    [In early adolescence] she becomes acutely aware of herself as a being perceived by others, judged by others, though she herself is the harshest judge, quick to list her physical flaws, quick to undervalue and under-rate herself not only in terms of physical appearance but across a wide range of talents, capacities and even social status, whereas boys of the same age will cite their abilities, their talents and their social status pretty accurately.
    Terri Apter (20th century)
