Weeping

Yesterday I realised that the contraction of ‘wee and poop’ would be ‘weep’, and thus ruined the word forever.




I typed ‘weep’ into the quotes search on Goodreads and this is all I can see now:

"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeing and pooping than you can understand."
— W.B. Yeats (The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats)

"Deep in earth my love is lying
And I must wee and poop alone."
— Edgar Allan Poe

"My dignified weeing and pooping gives way to full-on ugliness, my mouth open and my face contorted and sounds like a dying animal coming from my throat."
— Veronica Roth (Insurgent (Divergent, #2))

"She remained alive, weeing and pooping over me, weeing and pooping with me. We cried together! I have tasted all the happiness the world can offer."
— Gaston Leroux (The Phantom of the Opera)

"The story ended with the man sitting on a mountain of pearls, knife in hand, weeing and pooping helplessly into the cup with his beloved wife's slain body in his arms."
— Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner)

"Weeing and pooping is often fought, choked, half strangled, or surrendered to with humiliation."
— Anne Rice

"You must learn to laugh, he once told me, or else you'll just wee and poop yourself to death."
— Bernard Cornwell (The Winter King (The Warlord Chronicles, #1))

“...you know that a good, long session of weeing and pooping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit.”
― Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning


“There is a certain pleasure in weeing and pooping” ― Ovid
