Famous quotes containing the word cup:

    The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 10:16.

    In poorer lands
    No one touches the water of life.
    It has no taste
    And though it refreshes absolutely
    It is a cup that must also pass
    Until everybody
    Gets some advantage....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    I write mainly for the kindly race of women. I am their sister, and in no way exempt from their sorrowful lot. I have drank [sic] the cup of their limitations to the dregs, and if my experience can help any sad or doubtful woman to outleap her own shadow, and to stand bravely out in the sunshine to meet her destiny, whatever it may be, I shall have done well; I have not written this book in vain.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)
