What is born?

Famous quotes containing the word born:

    I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth.
    Pete Townshend (b. 1945)

    The difference between tragedy and comedy is the difference between experience and intuition. In the experience we strive against every condition of our animal life: against death, against the frustration of ambition, against the instability of human love. In the intuition we trust the arduous eccentricities we’re born to, and see the oddness of a creature who has never got acclimatized to being created.
    Christopher Fry (b. 1907)

    When the bond of love broke,
    the respect born of affection withered,
    good feelings fled,
    and that man walked before me
    like any other,
    Good Friend,
    I imagine all this,
    think on days gone by
    and wonder why
    my heart hasn’t cracked
    into a hundred bits.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
