Famous quotes containing the words daisies and/or pushing:
“they can be both daisies and bruises.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five
thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from
anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I
could completely imagine his suffering and I replied
that five thousand Chinamen was something I could not
imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to
remember that about imagination, that is when the
world gets dull when everybody does not know what
they can or what they cannot really imagine.”
—Gertrude Stein (18741946)
