Famous quotes containing the words house and/or sumner:

    Borrow a child and get on welfare.
    Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
    or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
    to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
    be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and don’t talk
    back ...
    Susan Griffin (b. 1943)

    through the Sumner Tunnel,
    trunk by trunk through its sulphurous walls,
    tile by tile like a men’s urinal,
    slipping through
    like somebody else’s package.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
