Famous quotes containing the words randall jarrell, jarrell and/or randall:

    I wrung from the darkness—that the darkness flung me—
    Is worthless as ignorance: nothing comes from nothing,
    The darkness from the darkness. Pain comes from the darkness
    And we call it wisdom. It is pain.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    —Here, the flag snaps in the glare and silence
    Of the unbroken ice. I stand here,
    The dogs bark, my beard is black, and I stare
    At the North Pole. . .
    And now what? Why, go back.

    Turn as I please, my step is to the south.
    —Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    I’m going to my room now. Nobody must disturb me. Nobody, do you understand? I—I sleep during the day.
    Griffin Jay, Randall Faye, and Lew Landers. Armand Tesla (Bela Lugosi)
