Famous quotes containing the word bore:

    There is no bore like a clever bore.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    Long ago the country bore the country-town and nourished it with her best blood. Now the giant city sucks the country dry, insatiably and incessantly demanding and devouring fresh streams of men, till it wearies and dies in the midst of an almost uninhabited waste of country.
    Oswald Spengler (1880–1936)

    If from the earth we came, it was an earth
    That bore us as a part of all the things
    It breeds and that was lewder than it is.
    Our nature is her nature. Hence it comes,
    Since by our nature we grow old, earth grows
    The same. We parallel the mother’s death.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
