Famous quotes containing the word centre:

    Being at the centre of a film is a burden one takes on with innocence—the first time. Thereafter, you take it on with trepidation.
    Daniel Day Lewis (b. 1957)

    Here in the centre stands the glass. Light
    Is the lion that comes down to drink. There
    And in that state, the glass is a pool.
    Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
    When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    To live and die amongst foreigners may seem less absurd than to live persecuted or tortured by one’s fellow countrymen.... But to emigrate is always to dismantle the centre of the world, and so to move into a lost, disoriented one of fragments.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
