These two sound-alike words in English are very easy to mistake - born and borne. Here are some proverbs and quotations to show the difference.
BORNE. This is the participal form of the verb "bear." So, if you bear a heavy burden, that burden is "borne" by you. If something is unbearable, that means it cannot be "borne."
The burden which is well borne becomes light. [Ovid, ancient Roman poet]
Adversity is easier borne than prosperity forgotten. [English proverb]
BORN. This spelling of the word refers to birth and being born.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ’em. [Shakespeare, Twelfth Night]
It is better to be born lucky than rich. [English proverb]
Because a man is born in a stable that does not make him a horse. [English proverb]
The children of cats are born to catch rats. [medieval Latin proverb]
