Moments

Famous quotes containing the word moments:

    The average Kentuckian may appear a bit confused in his knowledge of history, but he is firmly certain about current politics. Kentucky cannot claim first place in political importance, but it tops the list in its keen enjoyment of politics for its own sake. It takes the average Kentuckian only a matter of moments to dispose of the weather and personal helath, but he never tires of a political discussion.
    —For the State of Kentucky, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    When it looks at great accomplishments, the world, bent on simplifying its images, likes best to look at the dramatic, picturesque moments experienced by its heroes.... But the no less creative years of preparation remain in the shadow.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    There are moments when the body is as numinous
    as words, days that are the good flesh continuing
    Such tenderness, those afternoons and evenings,
    saying blackberry, blackberry, blackberry.
    Robert Hass (b. 1941)
