Famous quotes containing the words marge piercy, piercy and/or marge:

    This nation is founded on blood like a city on swamps
    yet its dream has been beautiful and sometimes just
    that now grows brutal and heavy as a burned out star.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    The work of the world is common as mud.
    Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
    But the thing worth doing well done
    has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.
    ...
    The pitcher cries for water to carry
    and a person for work that is real.
    —Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
