Famous quotes containing the word table:
“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 cant stop to discuss whether the table has or hasnt 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?)
“The best thing about Sassy Seats is that grandmothers cannot figure out how they work and are in constant fear of the childs falling. This often makes them forget to comment on other aspects of the childs development, like why he is not yet talking or is still wearing diapers. Some grandmothers will spend an entire meal peering beneath the table and saying, Is that thing steady? rather than, Have you had a doctor look at that left hand?”
—Anna Quindlen (20th century)
“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 (18791955)
