Worn

Famous quotes containing the word worn:

    It was almost two years ago, while awaiting the imminent birth of my second child, that I decided to start working part-time. This would have been unthinkable to me when I was younger. At twenty-five I should have worn a big red A on my chest; it would have stood for ambition, an ambition so brazen and burning that it would have reduced Hester Prynne’s transgression to pale pink.
    Anna Quindlen (20th century)

    My death from the wrists,
    two name tags,
    blood worn like a corsage
    to bloom
    one on the left and one on the right....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    What we have worn out our iron-soled shoes searching for in vain may come to us without the slightest effort.
    Chinese proverb.
