Famous quotes containing the word quarter:

    I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the haunted house no quarter is given: in that respect
    It’s very much business as usual. The reductive principle
    Is no longer there, or isn’t enforced as much as before.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    I was able to believe for years that going to Madame Swann’s was a vague chimera that I would never attain; after having passed a quarter of an hour there, it was the time at which I did not know her which became to me a chimera and vague, as a possible destroyed by another possible.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
