Famous quotes containing the word held:

    For a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    The wind had seized the tree and ha, and ha,
    It held the shivering, the shaken limbs,
    Then bathed its body in the leaping lake.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Life is crazy. Now, maybe you knew this all along. But before I had children, I actually held on to the illusion that there was some sense of order to the universe.... I am now convinced that we are all living in a Chagall painting—a world where brides and grooms and cows and chickens and angels and sneakers are all mixed up together, sometimes floating in the air, sometimes upside down and everywhere.
    Susan Lapinski (20th century)
