Famous quotes containing the words record and/or boot:

    That is what the highest criticism really is, the record of one’s own soul. It is more fascinating than history, as it is concerned simply with oneself. It is more delightful than philosophy, as its subject is concrete and not abstract, real and not vague. It is the only civilised form of autobiography.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    ... until the shopkeeper plants his boot in our eyes,
    and unties our bone and is finished with the case,
    and turns to the next customer, forgetting our face
    or how we knelt at the yellow bulb with sighs
    like moth wings for a short while in a small place.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
