Famous quotes containing the word cage:

    You can cage the singer but not the song.
    Harry Belafonte (b. 1927)

    A work in progress quickly becomes feral. It reverts to a wild state overnight. It is barely domesticated, a mustang on which you one day fastened a halter, but which now you cannot catch. It is a lion you cage in your study. As the work grows, it gets harder to control; it is a lion growing in strength. You must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)

    Out of the cage came Eve,
    escaping, escaping.
    She was clothed in her skin like the sun
    and her ankles were not for sale.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
