Famous quotes containing the word stevens:

    There’s no such thing as life; or if there is,
    It is faster than the weather, faster than
    Any character. It is more than any scene:
    Of the guillotine or of any glamorous hanging.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The lean cats of the arches of the churches,
    That’s the old world. In the new, all men are priests.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    It had been cold since December. Snow fell, first,
    At New Year and, from then until April, lay
    On everything. Now it had melted, leaving
    The gray grass like a pallet, closely pressed;
    And dirt. The wind blew in the empty place.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
