Famous quotes containing the word bloody:

    it was you untying the snarls and knots,
    the webs, all bloody and gluey;
    you with your twelve tongues and twelve wings
    beating, wresting, beating, beating
    your way out of childhood,
    that airless net that fastened you down.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The whole bloody system is sick: the very notion of leadership, a balloon with a face painted upon it, elected and inflated by media’s diabolic need to reduce ideas to personalities.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    Do put your hand over your mouth, please. It’s bloody revolting.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
