Famous quotes containing the word put:

    a big picture of K. Marx with an axe,
    “Where I cut off one it will never grow again.”
    O Karl would it were true
    I’d put my saw to work for you
    & the wicked social tree would fall right down.

    Even nursery rhymes have put me in hock.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

BE A MAN! may have been, metaphorically, what Eve uttered at the critical moment in the Garden of Eden.
    Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)
