Famous quotes containing the words reading and/or beginning:

    Any reading not of a vicious species must be a good substitute for the amusements too apt to fill up the leisure of the labouring classes.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    Man was Cadaver’s masker, the harnessing mantle,
    Windily master of man was the rotten fathom,
    My ghost in his metal neptune
    Forged in man’s mineral.
    This was the god of beginning in the intricate seawhirl,
    And my images roared and rose on heaven’s hill.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
