Begot

Famous quotes containing the word begot:

    You have begot me, bred me, loved me. I
    Return those duties back as are right fit,
    Obey you, love you, and most honor you.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It is visible then that it was not any Heathen Religion or other Idolatrous Superstition, that first put Man upon crossing his Appetites and subduing his dearest Inclinations, but the skilful Management of wary Politicians; and the nearer we search into human Nature, the more we shall be convinced, that the Moral Virtues are the Political Offspring which Flattery begot upon Pride.
    Bernard De Mandeville (1670–1733)

    I wish either my father or my mother, or indeed both of them, as they were in duty both equally bound to it, had minded what they were about when they begot me.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
