Famous quotes containing the words calendar and/or start:

    To divide one’s 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 it’s too late;
    Just please me for two generations
    You’ll be ‘truly great.’”
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
