Famous quotes containing the word long:

    Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen. On the farm the weather was the great fact, and men’s affairs went on underneath it, as the streams creep under the ice. But in Black Hawk the scene of human life was spread out shrunken and pinched, frozen down to the bare stalk.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    This long last childhood
    Nothing provides for.
    What can it do each day
    But hunt that imminent door
    Through which all that understood
    Has hidden away?
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
