Famous quotes containing the word making:

    When Nature was shaping him, clay was not granted
    For making so full-sized a man as she wanted,
    So, to fill out her model, a little she spared
    From some finer-grained stuff for a woman prepared,
    And she could not have hit a more excellent plan
    For making him fully and perfectly man.
    James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    If the Christ were content with humble toilers for disciples, that wasn’t good enough for our Bert. He wanted dukes’ half sisters and belted earls wiping his feet with their hair; grand apotheosis of the snob, to humiliate the objects of his own awe by making them venerate him.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
