Arrived

Famous quotes containing the word arrived:

    As a final instance of the force of limitations in the development of concentration, I must mention that beautiful creature, Helen Keller, whom I have known for these many years. I am filled with wonder of her knowledge, acquired because shut out from all distraction. If I could have been deaf, dumb, and blind I also might have arrived at something.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    And thus Snow White became the prince’s bride.
    The wicked queen was invited to the wedding feast
    and when she arrived there were
    red-hot iron shoes,
    in the manner of red-hot roller skates,
    clamped upon her feet.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    For Afro-Americans, it could be argued that every year they’ve spent in this country since they arrived in chains to perform forced labor has been 1984.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
