Famous quotes containing the word spawn:

    Wherefore did Nature powre her bounties forth,
    With such a full and unwithdrawing hand,
    Covering the earth with odours, fruits, and flocks,
    Thronging the Seas with spawn innumerable,
    But all to please, and sate the curious taste?
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    This monster of a land, this mightiest of nations, this spawn of the future, turns out to be the macrocosm of microcosm me.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)
