Baby Snails

Famous quotes containing the words baby and/or snails:

    Let’s just call what happened in the eighties the reclamation of motherhood . . . by women I knew and loved, hard-driving women with major careers who were after not just babies per se or motherhood per se, but after a reconciliation with their memories of their own mothers. So having a baby wasn’t just having a baby. It became a major healing.
    Anne Taylor Fleming (20th century)

    little snails at the back
    of the knee building bon-
    fires ...
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
