Famous quotes containing the word words:

    If these were only words that I am speaking
    Indifferent sounds and not the heraldic-ho
    Of the clear sovereign that is reality,
    Of the clearest reality that is sovereign,
    How should I repeat them, keep repeating them....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The skreak and skritter of evening gone
    And grackles gone and sorrows of the sun,
    The sorrows of sun, too, gone . . . the moon and moon,
    The yellow moon of words about the nightingale
    In measureless measures, not a bird for me....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Your last words as you led the charge up the beach were, “Okay, men, let’s show ‘em whose beach this is!”
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)
