Famous quotes containing the words disease and/or bowel:

    His poor self,
    A dedicated beggar to the air,
    With his disease of all-shunned poverty,
    Walks, like contempt, alone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I who was a house full of bowel movement,
    I who was a defaced altar,
    I who wanted to crawl toward God
    could not move nor eat bread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
