Famous quotes containing the words names, minor and/or planet:

    At night thousands of names and slogans are outlined in neon, and searchlight beams often pierce the sky, perhaps announcing a motion picture premiere, perhaps the opening of a new hamburger stand.
    —For the State of California, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child’s world and thus a world event.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)

    Until they saw, over the mists
    of Venus, two fish creatures stop
    on spangled legs and crawl
    from the belly of the sea.
    And from the planet park
    they heard the new fruit drop.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
