Famous quotes containing the words carnal knowledge, knowledge and/or carnal:

    Carnal knowledge is as forgettable as the other kinds.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The world still wants its poet-priest, a reconciler, who shall not trifle with Shakspeare the player, nor shall grope in graves with Swedenborg the mourner; but who shall see, speak, and act, with equal inspiration. For knowledge will brighten the sunshine; right is more beautiful than private affection; and love is compatible with universal wisdom.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    You will not easily get a man to believe that his carnal love for the woman he has made his wife is as high a love as that he felt for his mother or sister.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
