Days

Famous quotes containing the word days:

    I wish the days to be as centuries, loaded, fragrant. Now we reckon them as bank-days, by some debt which is to be paid us, or which we are to pay, or some pleasure we are to taste.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    My spirit is broken, my days are extinct, the grave is ready for me.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 17:1.

    The arbitrary division of one’s life into weeks and days and hours seemed, on the whole, useless. There was but one day for the men, and that was pay day, and one for the women, and that was rent day. As for the children, every day was theirs, just as it should be in every corner of the world.
    Alice Caldwell Rice (1870–1942)
