Famous quotes containing the words cup and/or imagine:

    Sisters define their rivalry in terms of competition for the gold cup of parental love. It is never perceived as a cup which runneth over, rather a finite vessel from which the more one sister drinks, the less is left for the others.
    Elizabeth Fishel (20th century)

    Do I imagine he no longer trembles
    When I come close to him?
    He seems no longer to tremble.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)
