Famous quotes containing the words duck and/or birthday:

    She shall get a duke, my dear,
    As duck do get a drake;
    And she shall have a young prince,
    For her own fair sake.
    Unknown. Green Grass (l. 9–12)

    It is ironic that the one thing that all religions recognize as separating us from our creator—our very self-consciousness—is also the one thing that divides us from our fellow creatures. It was a bitter birthday present from evolution.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)
