Famous quotes containing the word long:

    At last now you can be
    What the old cannot recall
    And the young long for in dreams,
    Yet still include them all.
    Elizabeth Jennings (b. 1926)

    Chanuka and St. Nicholas Day came almost together this year—just one day’s difference. We didn’t make much fuss about Chanuka: we just gave each other a few little presents and then we had the candles. Because of the shortage of candles we only had them alight for ten minutes, but it is all right as long as you have the song.
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    White in the moon the long road lies,
    The moon stands blank above;
    White in the moon the long road lies
    That leads me from my love.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
