Famous quotes containing the word pigeon:

    Suppose that humans happen to be so constructed that they desire the opportunity for freely undertaken productive work. Suppose that they want to be free from the meddling of technocrats and commissars, bankers and tycoons, mad bombers who engage in psychological tests of will with peasants defending their homes, behavioral scientists who can’t tell a pigeon from a poet, or anyone else who tries to wish freedom and dignity out of existence or beat them into oblivion.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    They wait, each like a wooden decoy
    or soft like a pigeon or
    a sweet snug duck:
    until one moves, moves that dart-beak
    breaking over.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
