Famous quotes containing the words wallace stevens, stevens and/or wallace:

    Civilization must be destroyed. The hairy saints
    Of the North have earned this crumb by their complaints.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    You could almost see the brass on her gleaming,
    Not quite. The mist was to light what red
    Is to fire. And her mainmast tapered to nothing,
    Without teetering a millimeter’s measure.
    The beads on her rails seemed to grasp at transparence.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The destiny of the whole race is comprised in four things: Religion, education, morals, politics. Woman is a religious being; she is becoming educated; she has a high code of morals; she will yet purify politics.
    —Zerelda G. Wallace (1817–1901)
