Famous quotes containing the word middle:

    A normal adolescent is so restless and twitchy and awkward that he can mange to injure his knee—not playing soccer, not playing football—but by falling off his chair in the middle of French class.
    Judith Viorst (20th century)

    There is a time of life somewhere between the sullen fugues of adolescence and the retrenchments of middle age when human nature becomes so absolutely absorbing one wants to be in the city constantly, even at the height of summer.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)

    I wanted him to fly, burst like a missile from your throat,
    burst from the spidery-mother-web,
    burst from Woman herself
    where too many had laid out lights
    that stuck to you and left a burn
    that smarted into your middle age.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
