Famous quotes containing the word exotic:

    I did not know the woman I would be
    nor that blood would bloom in me
    each month like an exotic flower,
    nor that children,
    two monuments,
    would break from between my legs....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
