Feet

Famous quotes containing the word feet:

    If the Christ were content with humble toilers for disciples, that wasn’t good enough for our Bert. He wanted dukes’ half sisters and belted earls wiping his feet with their hair; grand apotheosis of the snob, to humiliate the objects of his own awe by making them venerate him.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    All the oxygen of the world was in them.
    All the feet of the babies of the world were in them.
    All the crotches of the angels of the world were in them.
    All the morning kisses of Philadelphia were in them.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Our loss put six feet under ground
    Is measured by the magnolia’s root;
    Our gain’s the intellectual sound
    Of death’s feet round a weedy tomb.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
