Famous quotes containing the word worn:

    His misfortune was that he loved youth—he was weak to it, it kindled him. If there was one eager eye, one doubting, critical mind, one lively curiosity in a whole lecture-room full of commonplace boys and girls, he was its servant. That ardour could command him. It hadn’t worn out with years, this responsiveness, any more than the magnetic currents wear out; it had nothing to do with Time.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Now the runaways would run no more and never
    again would their hair be tangled into diamonds,
    never again their shoes worn down to a laugh,
    never the bed falling down into purgatory
    to let them climb in after
    with their Lucifer kicking.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    If the individual, or heretic, gets hold of some essential truth, or sees some error in the system being practised, he commits so many marginal errors himself that he is worn out before he can establish his point.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
