Famous quotes containing the words line and/or agate:

    We have not passed that subtle line between childhood and adulthood until we move from the passive voice to the active voice—that is, until we have stopped saying “It got lost,” and say, “I lost it.”
    Sydney J. Harris (b. 1917)

    I see the horses and the sad streets
    Of my childhood in an agate eye
    Roving, under the clean sheets,
    Over a black hole in the sky.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
