I am proud that my daughter believes, as I do, that hungry children should be fed whether they are Black Panthers or White Republicans"
The souls most fed with Shakespeare's flame Still sat unconquered in a ring, Remembering him like anything.1915 'Shakespeare Memorial'.
The economy - once a great scatter of small productive units in autonomous balance, has become dominated by two or three hundred giant corporations, administratively and politically interrelated… The political order, once a decentralized set of several dozen states with a weak spinal cord, has become a centralized executive establishment which has taken up into itself many powers previously scattered… The military order, once a slim establishment in a context of distrust fed by state militia, has become the largest and most expensive feature of government.c. wright mills
Who will remember, passing through this Gate, The unheroic Dead who fed the guns? Who shall absolve the foulness of their fate, Those doomed, conscripted, unvictorious ones?1928 The Heart'sJourney, pt.21,'On Passing the New Menin Gate'.
Though the Negroes are fed, clothed, and housed, and though the Irish peasant is starved, naked, and roofless, the bare name of freemen—the lordship over his own person, the power to choose and will—are blessings beyond food, raiment, or shelter; possessing which, the want of every comfort of life is yet more tolerable than their fullest enjoyment without them.fanny kemble
I attacked those Western playwrights who use their influence and affluence to preach to the world the nihilistic doctrine that life is pointless and irrationally destructive, and that there is nothing we can do about it. Until everyone is fed, clothed, housed and taught, until human beings have equal leisure to contemplate the overwhelming fact of mortality, we should not (I argued) indulge in the luxury of "privileged despair."Kenneth Tynan
For 338 paragraphs the Franks report painted a splendid picture, delineated the light and the shade, and the glowing colours in it, and when Franks got to paragraph 339 he got fed up with the canvas he was painting and chucked a bucket of whitewash over it.james callaghan
Every age is fed on illusions, lest men should renounce life early and the human race come to an end.joseph conrad
The life of the husbandman, a life fed by the bounty of earth and sweetened by the airs of heaven.Douglas William Jerrold
The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed, But, swoln with wind, and the rank mist they draw, Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread: Besides what the grim wolf with privy paw Daily devours apace, and nothing said; But that two-handed engine at the door Stands ready to smite once, and smite no more.john milton
Whatever flames upon the night Man’s own resinous heart has fed.William Butler Yeats
The academies and universities satisfied Socrates’ demand to be fed in the prytaneum.Allan Bloom, “Commerce and Culture,” Giants and Dwarfs (1990), p. 289
The biggest challenge [for solar power] is escaping from the economic effects of vendor lock-in where large investments in nuclear and traditional energy sources keep us 'locked-in' to feeding monsters that will bring us down an economic black hole. It's rather like the play The Little Shop of Horrors where a man-eating plant is initially fed small amounts, but then its voracious appetite sends it into a downward spiral swallowing up anyone that gets in its way.Derek Abbott (2009) quoted in Lisa Zyga, "How a Solar-Hydrogen Economy Could Supply the World's Energy Needs", , 24 August 2009
The hedge-sparrow fed the cuckoo so long, That it had it head bit off by it young.william shakespeare
A Sensitive Plant in a garden grew, And the young winds fed it with silver dew, And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light, And clothed them beneath the kisses of night.Percy Bysshe Shelley
People forgot that industry is not an end in itself, but should be only a means to insure to man his material subsistence and to make accessible to him the blessings of a higher intellectual culture. Where industry is everything and man is nothing begins the realm of a ruthless economic despotism whose workings are no less disastrous than those of any political despotism. The two mutually augment one another, and they are fed from the same source.Rudolf Rocker, in Anarcho-Syndicalism (1989 Edition), Pluto Press, p. 10
Is this a holy thing to see In a rich fruitful land, Babes reduced to misery, fed with cold and usurous hand?william blake
Hyperinflation is not going to happen in this country, will never happen... The fed putting so much money into the system is not going to create the risk of hyperinflation in the future. We have a strong independent Federal Reserve with a very strong mandate from the Congress, and they will do what's necessary to keep inflation low and stable over time.Timothy Geithner This Week with George Stephanopoulos, March 29, 2009 
Happy insect! what can be In happiness compared to thee? fed with nourishment divine, The dewy morning's gentle wine! Nature waits upon thee still, And thy verdant cup does fill; 'Tis fill'd wherever thou dost tread, Nature's self's thy Ganymede.Abraham Cowley
