Famous quotes containing the word stake:

    Some days your hat’s off to the full-time mothers for being able to endure the relentless routine and incessant policing seven days a week instead of two. But on other days, merely the image of this woman crafting a brontosaurus out of sugar paste and sheet cake for her two-year-old’s birthday drives a stake through your heart.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    Don’t you see what’s at stake here? The ultimate aim of all science—to penetrate the unknown. Do you realize we know less about the earth we live on than about the stars and the galaxies of outer space? The greatest mystery is right here, right under our feet.
    Walter Reisch (1903–1963)

    I’ll stake all my soul
    on that beauty,
    till God shall awake
    again in men’s hearts,
    who have said he is dead
    our King and our Lover.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
