Conception Day

Famous quotes containing the words conception and/or day:

    We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time. And there are but two means of escaping and forgetting this nightmare: pleasure and work. Pleasure consumes us. Work strengthens us. Let us choose.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    O he did whistle and she did sing,
    And all the bells on earth did ring
    For joy our Saviour Christ was born
    On Christmas Day in the morning.
    —Unknown. As I Sat on a Sunny Bank. . .

    Oxford Book of Light Verse, The. W. H. Auden, ed. (1938)
