Famous quotes containing the words bred and/or captive:
“Ive been cursed for delving into the mysteries of life. Perhaps death is sacred, and Ive profaned it. Oh, what a wonderful vision it was. I dreamed of being the first to give to the world the secret that God is so jealous of, the formula for life. Think of the power, to create a man. And I did, I did it, I created a man. And who knows, in time I could have trained him to do my will. I could have bred a race, I might even have found the secret of eternal life.”
—William Hurlbut (1883?)
“There a captive sat in chains
Crooning ditties treasured well
From his Africs torrid plains.
Sole estate his sire bequeathed,
Hapless sire to hapless son,
Was the wailing song he breathed,
And his chain when life was done.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
