Famous quotes containing the word stops:

    A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.
    Lois Wyse (20th century)

    What a person is begins to betray itself when his talent weakens—when he stops showing what he can do. Talent, too, is ornamentation, and ornamentation, too, is a hiding place.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    A solitary traveller can sleep from state to state, from day to night, from day to day, in the long womb of its controlled interior. It is the cradle that never stops rocking after the lullaby is over. It is the biggest sleeping tablet in the world, and no one need ever swallow the pill, for it swallows them.
    —Lisa St. Aubin de Terán (b. 1953)
