Famous quotes containing the word table:

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    Anthony Jay (b. 1930)

    When I think of our lands I think of the house
    And the table that holds a platter of pears,
    Vermilion smeared over green, arranged for show.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    How to attain sufficient clarity of thought to meet the terrifying issues now facing us, before it is too late, is ... important. Of one thing I feel reasonably sure: we can’t stop to discuss whether the table has or hasn’t legs when the house is burning down over our heads. Nor do the classics per se seem to furnish the kind of education which fits people to cope with a fast-changing civilization.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
