Born Quotes

Children of a culture born in a water-rich environment, we have never really learned how important water is to us. We understand it, but we do not respect it.

WILLIAM ASHWORTH

Kent Nerburn

We are born male or female, but not masculine or feminine.

Sandra Bartky

Unknown

No one is better born than another, unless they are born with better abilities and a more amiable disposition.
