Famous quotes containing the word babe:

    It’s babe feminism—we’re young, we’re fun, we do what we want in bed—and it has a shorter shelf life than the feminism of sisterhood. I’ve been a babe, and I’ve been a sister. Sister lasts longer.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    And if the Babe is born a Boy
    He’s given to a Woman Old,
    Who nails him down upon a rock
    Catches his shrieks in cups of gold.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    A boy not beautiful, nor good, nor clever,
    A black cloud full of storms too hot for keeping,
    A sword beneath his mother’s heart— yet never
    Woman bewept her babe as this is weeping.
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)
