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)

    Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; but urge me not to use moderation in a case like the present.
    William Lloyd Garrison (1805–1879)
