Famous quotes containing the word stevens:

    Someone has left for a ride in a balloon
    Or in a bubble examines the bubble of air.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Snow sparkles like eyesight falling to earth,

    Like seeing fallen brightly away.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Our sense of these things changes and they change,
    Not as in metaphor, but in our sense
    Of them. So sense exceeds all metaphor.
    It exceeds the heavy changes of the light.
    It is like a flow of meanings with no speech
    And of as many meanings as of men.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
