Famous quotes containing the word bits:

    Assemble, first, all casual bits and scraps
    That may shake down into a world perhaps;
    People this world, by chance created so,
    With random persons whom you do not know—
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    What in fact have I achieved, however much it may seem? Bits and pieces ... trivialities. But here they won’t tolerate anything else, or anything more. If I wanted to take one step in advance of the current views and opinions of the day, that would put paid to any power I have. Do you know what we are ... those of us who count as pillars of society? We are society’s tools, neither more nor less.
    Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906)

    On their slag heap, these children
    Wear skins peeped through by bones and spectacles of steel
    With mended glass, like bottle bits in slag.
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)
