Famous quotes containing the word worn:

    What we have worn out our iron-soled shoes searching for in vain may come to us without the slightest effort.
    Chinese proverb.

    No one can write a best seller by trying to. He must write with complete sincerity; the clich├ęs that make you laugh, the hackneyed characters, the well-worn situations, the commonplace story that excites your derision, seem neither hackneyed, well worn nor commonplace to him.... The conclusion is obvious: you cannot write anything that will convince unless you are yourself convinced. The best seller sells because he writes with his heart’s blood.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)

    Flame burns, rain sinks into the cracks
    And they all go to rack ruin beneath the thud of the years,
    Stands genius a deathless adornment,
    a name not to be worn out with the years.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
