Famous quotes containing the word pause:

    After a pause at Ball’s Hill, the St. Anne’s of Concord voyageurs, not to say any prayer for the success of our voyage, but to gather the few berries which were still left on the hills, hanging by very slender threads, we weighed anchor again, and were soon out of sight of our native village. The land seemed to grow fairer as we withdrew from it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Bear with me;
    My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
    And I must pause till it come back to me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    poems direct as what the birds said,
    hard as a floor, sound as a bench,
    mysterious as the silence when the tailor
    would pause with his needle in the air.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
