Famous quotes containing the word stamp:

    If she must teem,
    Create her child of spleen, that it may live
    And be a thwart disnatured torment to her!
    Let it stamp wrinkles in her brow of youth,
    With cadent tears fret channels in her cheeks,
    Turn all her mother’s pains and benefits
    To laughter and contempt, that she may feel
    How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is
    To have a thankless child!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Only a still place
    and perhaps some outer horror
    some hideousness to stamp beauty,
    a mark no changing it now
    on our hearts.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Now stamp the Lord’s Prayer on a grain of rice,
    A Bible-leaved of all the written woods
    Strip to this tree: a rocking alphabet,
    Genesis in the root, the scarecrow word,
    And one light’s language in the book of trees.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
