Famous quotes containing the word crouch:

    To be shelterless and alone in the open country, hearing the wind moan and watching for day through the whole long weary night; to listen to the falling rain, and crouch for warmth beneath the lee of some old barn or rick, or in the hollow of a tree; are dismal things—but not so dismal as the wandering up and down where shelter is, and beds and sleepers are by thousands; a houseless rejected creature.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    Don’t crouch any more and cling to my knees,
    don’t tempt me and try me,
    don’t beg like a child and cry,
    “you have taken my hope away.”
    I am not a god.
    I cannot make you happy.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    The kind of power mothers have is enormous. Take the skyline of Istanbul—enormous breasts, pathetic little willies, a final revenge on Islam. I was so scared I had to crouch in the bottom of the boat when I saw it.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
