Famous quotes containing the word fill:

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The caretaking has to be done. “Somebody’s got to be the mommy.” Individually, we underestimate this need, and as a society we make inadequate provision for it. Women take up the slack, making the need invisible as we step in to fill it.
    Mary Catherine Bateson (20th century)

    a solace of ripe plums
    seeming to fill the air
    They taste good to her
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
