Gave Birth

Famous quotes containing the words gave and/or birth:

    You know what? Poets are being pursued by the philosophers today out of the poverty of philosophy. God damn it, you might think a man had no business to be writing, to be a poet unless some philosophic stinker gave him permission.
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    They do not live in the world,
    Are not in time and space.
    From birth to death hurled
    No word do they have, not one
    To plant a foot upon,
    Were never in any place.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)
