Famous quotes containing the word absorb:

    Vulgarity cannot exist in the absence of loftier values. Once it has affected the latter, however, it wants to absorb them. Unless you want to be as weak and small as human beings, you had better stay away from them.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    We can glut ourselves with how-to-raise children information . . . strive to become more mature and aware but none of this will spare us from the . . . inevitability that some of the time we are going to fail our children. Because there is a big gap between knowing and doing. Because mature, aware people are imperfect too. Or because some current event in our life may so absorb or depress us that when our children need us we cannot come through.
    Judith Viorst (20th century)

    With my whole body I taste these peaches,
    I touch them and smell them. Who speaks?
    I absorb them as the Angevine
    Absorbs Anjou. I see them as a lover sees,
    As a young lover sees the first buds of spring
    And as the black Spaniard plays his guitar.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
