Famous quotes containing the word babe:

    I have given suck, and know
    How tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me;
    I would, while it was smiling in my face,
    Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums
    And dashed the brains out, had I so sworn
    As you have done to this.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It’s babe feminism—we’re young, we’re fun, we do what we want in bed—and it has a shorter shelf life than the feminism of sisterhood. I’ve been a babe, and I’ve been a sister. Sister lasts longer.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    But see, the Virgin blest
    Hath laid her Babe to rest:
    Time is our tedious song should here have ending;
    Heaven’s youngest teemed star,
    Hath fixed her polished car,
    Her sleeping Lord with handmaid lamp attending;
    And all about the courtly stable,
    Bright-harnessed angels sit in order serviceable.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
