Famous quotes containing the word gave:

    I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 3:6.

    ... women learned one important lesson—namely, that it is impossible for the best of men to understand women’s feelings or the humiliation of their position. When they asked us to be silent on our question during the War, and labor for the emancipation of the slave, we did so, and gave five years to his emancipation and enfranchisement.... I was convinced, at the time, that it was the true policy. I am now equally sure that it was a blunder.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Dame Poverty gave me my name,
    And Pain godfathered me.
