Famous quotes containing the word high:
“Research shows clearly that parents who have modeled nurturant, reassuring responses to infants fears and distress by soothing words and stroking gentleness have toddlers who already can stroke a crying childs hair. Toddlers whose special adults model kindliness will even pick up a cookie dropped from a peers high chair and return it to the crying peer rather than eat it themselves!”
—Alice Sterling Honig (20th century)
“Im for a high libido president! I applaud him if he gets up and picks up women.”
—Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
“Ay, look: high heaven and earth ail from the prime foundation;
All thoughts to rive the heart are here, and all are vain:
Horror and scorn and hate and fear and indignation
Oh, why did I awake? When shall I sleep again?”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
