Famous quotes containing the word feet:
“If the Christ were content with humble toilers for disciples, that wasnt 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 (19401992)
“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 (19281974)
“Our loss put six feet under ground
Is measured by the magnolias root;
Our gains the intellectual sound
Of deaths feet round a weedy tomb.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
