Bread

Famous quotes containing the word bread:

    Our bread need not ever be sour or hard to digest. What Nature is to the mind she is also to the body. As she feeds my imagination, she will feed my body; for what she says she means, and is ready to do. She is not simply beautiful to the poet’s eye. Not only the rainbow and sunset are beautiful, but to be fed and clothed, sheltered and warmed aright, are equally beautiful and inspiring. There is not necessarily any gross and ugly fact which may not be eradicated from the life of man.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Our checks are pale. Our wallets are invalids.
    Past due, past due, is what our bills are saying
    and yet we kiss in every corner, scuffing the dust
    and the cat. Love rises like bread as we go bust.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    There is not the woman born who desires to eat the bread of dependence, no matter whether it be from the hand of father, husband, or brother; for any one who does so eat her bread places herself in the power of the person from whom she takes it.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
