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

    It is deep January. The sky is hard.
    The stalks are firmly rooted in ice.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    As if, as if, as if the disparate halves
    Of things were waiting in a betrothal known
    To none, awaiting espousal to the sound
    Of right joining, a music of ideas, the burning
    And breeding and bearing birth of harmony,
    The final relation, the marriage of the rest.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
