Famous quotes containing the words years and/or final:

    We watched her jug a hare, once, on television, years ago.... The hare had been half rotted, then cremated, then consumed. If there is a god and she is of the rabbit family, then Saskia will be in deep doo- doo on Judgment Day.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

I am filled with wonder of her knowledge, acquired because shut out from all distraction. If I could have been deaf, dumb, and blind I also might have arrived at something.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
