A Wild Wild World of Animal Dolls

Famous quotes containing the words dolls, animal, wild and/or world:

    Why are all these dolls falling out of the sky?
    Was there a father?
    Or have the planets cut holes in their nets
    and let our childhood out,
    or are we the dolls themselves,
    born but never fed?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    ‘Tis said that courage is common, but the immense esteem in which it is held proves it to be rare. Animal resistance, the instinct of the male animal when cornered, is no doubt common; but the pure article, courage with eyes, courage with conduct, self-possession at the cannon’s mouth, cheerfulness in lonely adherence to the right, is the endowment of elevated characters.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Reason sits firm and holds the reins, and she will not let the feelings burst away and hurry her to wild chasms. The passions may rage furiously, like true heathens, as they are; and the desires may imagine all sorts of vain things: but judgement shall still have the last word in every argument, and the casting vote in every decision.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    in your mind inwardly despise
    The brittle world so full of doubleness,
    With the vile flesh, and right soon arise
    Out of your sleep of mortal heaviness;
    Subdue the devil with grace and mekeness,
    Stephen Hawes (1474–1528)
