Famous quotes containing the word shape:
“The work of the world is common as mud.
Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done
has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.
The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.”
—Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
“The shape of a rat?
Its bigger than that.
Its less than a leg
And more than a nose,
Just under the water
It usually goes.”
—Theodore Roethke (19081963)
