Dates

Famous quotes containing the word dates:

    We do NOT know the past in chronological sequence. It may be convenient to lay it out anesthetized on the table with dates pasted on here and there, but what we know we know by ripples and spirals eddying out from us and from our own time.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    Dates are stupidly annoying—what we want is not dates but taste;Myet we are uncomfortable without them.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    I never heard of an old man forgetting where he had buried his money! Old people remember what interests them: the dates fixed for their lawsuits, and the names of their debtors and creditors.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)
