Famous quotes with Parturition

  • There are those things that we find ourselves at ease to do in private,and as such form the most potent of our human nature.However such practices are,habitually,not of a virtuous parturition.We must find ourselves,in more ways than once,troubled by such practices,much concerning their unfittingness.When such happenings are fostered,they become fixative,and their most dangerous form comes when the mind is deluded,slowly as it has been learnt, into believing the previous to be right and acceptable.
    lot chakonza
  • With the offspring of genius, the law of parturition is reversed; the throes are in the conception, the pleasure in the birth.
    Charles Caleb Colton
