Famous quotes containing the words west and/or key:

    Go on, high ship, since now, upon the shore,
    The snake has left its skin upon the floor.
    Key West sank downward under massive clouds
    And silvers and greens spread over the sea. The moon
    Is at the mast-head and the past is dead.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    All meanings, we know, depend on the key of interpretation.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
