### Famous quotes containing the word times:

“How many *times* these low feet staggered—

Only the soldered mouth can tell—”

—Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

“Methinks a Man cannot, without a secret Satisfaction, consider the Glory of the present Age, which will shine as bright as any other in the History of Mankind. It is still big with great Events, and has already produced Changes and Revolutions which will be as much admired by Posterity, as any that have happened in the Days of our Fathers, or in the old *Times* before them.”

—Richard Steele (1672–1729)

“If an angel were ever to tell us anything of his philosophy I believe many propositions would sound like 2 *times* 2 equals 13.”

—G.C. (Georg Christoph)
