Famous quotes containing the words archibald macleish and/or macleish:

    By words, by voices, a lost way—
    And here above the chimney stack
    The unknown constellations sway—
    And by what way shall I go back?
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)

    The American mood, perhaps even the American character, has changed. There are few manifestations any longer of the old American self-assurance which so irritated Dickens.... Instead, there is a sense of frustration so perceptible that even our politicians ... have attempted to exploit it.
    —Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)
