Famous quotes containing the word give:

    Tom Mix: Wyatt, is that really the way it was?
    Wyatt Earp: Absolutely. Well, give or take a lie or two.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    The body, what is it, Father, but a sign
    To love the force that grows us, to give back
    What in Thy palm is senselessness and mud?
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    At thirty years a woman asks her lover to give her back the esteem she has forfeited for his sake; she lives only for him, her thoughts are full of his future, he must have a great career, she bids him make it glorious; she can obey, entreat, command, humble herself, or rise in pride; times without number she brings comfort when a young girl can only make moan.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)
