Famous quotes containing the word years:

    To be honest, I knew that there was no difference between dying at their years old and dying at seventy because, naturally, in both cases, other men and women will live on, for thousands of years at that.... It was still I who was dying, whether it was today or twenty years from now.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Alas, Postumus, Postumus, the fleeting years slip by.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8 B.C.)

    Wondrous hole! Magical hole! Dazzlingly influential hole! Noble and effulgent hole! From this hole everything follows logically: first the baby, then the placenta, then, for years and years and years until death, a way of life. It is all logic, and she who lives by the hole will live also by its logic. It is, appropriately, logic with a hole in it.
    Cynthia Ozick (b. 1928)
