Famous quotes containing the words miraculous and/or births:

    To lose sensibility, to see what one sees,
    As if sight had not its own miraculous thrift,
    To hear only what one hears, one meaning alone,
    As if the paradise of meaning ceased
    To be paradise, it is this to be destitute.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    As the births of living creatures, at first, are ill-shapen: so are all Innovations, which are the births of time.
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)
