Famous quotes containing the word birth:

    Alas! The time is coming when man will no longer give birth to stars. Alas! The time of the most contemptible man is coming, one who can no longer despise himself. Behold! I show you the last man.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I am being given, if I may venture the expression, birth into death, such is my impression. The feet are clear already, of the great cunt of existence.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
