Pregnant Widow

Famous quotes containing the words pregnant and/or widow:

    Because humans are not alone in exhibiting such behavior—bees stockpile royal jelly, birds feather their nests, mice shred paper—it’s possible that a pregnant woman who scrubs her house from floor to ceiling [just before her baby is born] is responding to a biological imperative . . . . Of course there are those who believe that . . . the burst of energy that propels a pregnant woman to clean her house is a perfectly natural response to their mother’s impending visit.
    Mary Arrigo (20th century)

    For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 12:44.

    Jesus watching the widow contribute her two mites.
