Famous quotes containing the word poor:

    O world, how apt the poor are to be proud!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I keep thinking that what I need
    to do is buy my leg back.
    Surely it is for sale somewhere,
    poor broken tool, poor ornament.
    It might be in a store somewhere beside a lady’s scarf.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Now you roll
    in your sleep, seasick
    on your own breathing, poor old convict.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
