Famous quotes containing the word prime:

    Sometimes it takes years to really grasp what has happened to your life. What do you do after you are world-famous and nineteen or twenty and you have sat with prime ministers, kings and queens, the Pope? What do you do after that? Do you go back home and take a job? What do you do to keep your sanity? You come back to the real world.
    Wilma Rudolph (1940–1994)

    And shall I prime my children, pray, to pray?
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    And this must be the prime of life . . . I blink,
    As if at pain; for it is pain, to think
    This pantomime
    Of compensating act and counter-act,
    Defeat and counterfeit, makes up, in fact,
    My ablest time.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
