What is give up?

Famous quotes containing the words give up and/or give:

    The child who would be an adult must give up any lingering childlike sense of parental power, either the magical ability to solve your problems for you or the dreaded ability to make you turn back into a child. When you are no longer hiding from your parents, or clinging to them, and can accept them as fellow human beings, then they may do the same for you.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    Experience cannot be transferred. We may give wise advice, but we cannot give wisdom to follow it.
    H., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 230-3 (May 1828)

    Four or five whippoorwills
    Have come down from their native ledge
    To the open country edge
    To give us a piece of their bills.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
