Famous quotes containing the word worn:

    The prince in disguise makes the most charming beggar in the world, no doubt; but that is because—as all fairy-tales from the beginning of time have taught us—the prince wears his rags as if they were purple. And, to do that, he not only must once have worn purple, but must never forget the purple that he has worn. And to the argument that all cannot wear purple, I can ... only reply that that seems to me to be no reason why all should wear rags.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    All things uncomely and broken, all things worn out and old,
    The cry of a child by the roadway, the creak of a lumbering cart,
    The heavy steps of the ploughman, splashing the wintry mould,
    Are wronging your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Flame burns, rain sinks into the cracks
    And they all go to rack ruin beneath the thud of the years,
    Stands genius a deathless adornment,
    a name not to be worn out with the years.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
