Famous quotes containing the word beginning:
“Have you no beginning and end? Which heart is
the real one? Which eye the seer?”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“During the long ages of class rule, which are just beginning to cease, only one form of sovereignty has been assigned to all menthat, namely, over all women. Upon these feeble and inferior companions all men were permitted to avenge the indignities they suffered from so many men to whom they were forced to submit.”
—Mary Putnam Jacobi (18421906)
“Of Mans First Disobedience, and the Fruit
Of that Forbidden Tree, whose mortal taste
Brought Death into the World, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat,
Sing Heavnly Muse, that on the secret top
Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire
That Shepherd, who first taught the chosen Seed,
In the Beginning how the Heavns and Earth
Rose out of Chaos:”
—John Milton (16081674)
