Famous quotes containing the words day and/or labor:

    This day is called the Feast of Crispian.
    He that outlives this day and comes safe home
    Will stand a-tiptoe when this day is named
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It is not her body that he wants but it is only through her body that he can take possession of another human being, so he must labor upon her body, he must enter her body, to make his claim.
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
