Famous quotes containing the word lame:

    A man must thank his defects, and stand in some terror of his talents. A transcendent talent draws so largely on his forces as to lame him; a defect pays him revenues on the other side.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    O most lame and impotent conclusion!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    My nurses, those starchy ghosts,
    hover over me for my lame hours
    and my lame days. The mechanics
    of the body pump for their tricks.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
