Famous quotes containing the word tied:

    We are more tied to our faults than to our virtues.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The worker can unionize, go out on strike; mothers are divided from each other in homes, tied to their children by compassionate bonds; our wildcat strikes have most often taken the form of physical or mental breakdown.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    I tied down time with a rope
    but it came back.
    I put my head in a death bowl
    and my eyes shut up like clams.
    They didn’t come back.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
