Famous quotes containing the words louise bogan, louise and/or bogan:

    the bare eyes were before me
    And the hissing hair,
    Held up at a window, seen through a door.
    The stiff bald eyes, the serpents on the forehead
    Formed in the air.

    Catholicism is not a soothing religion. It’s a painful religion. We’re all gluttons for punishment.
    Madonna [Madonna Louise Ciccione] (b. 1959)

    The cats will be glad; the fathers feel justified; the mothers
    relieved.
    The sons and husbands will no longer need to pay the bills.
    Childhoods will be put away, the obscene nightmare abated.
    —Louise Bogan (1897–1970)
