Famous quotes containing the words calendar and/or start:
“To divide ones life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.”
—Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)
“So stop looking blue
And start serving up your sensations
Before its too late;
Just please me for two generations
Youll be truly great.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
