Famous quotes containing the words midnight and/or runners:

    at mothy curfew-tide,
    And at midnight when the noon-heat breathes it back from walls and leads,
    They’ve a way of whispering to me—fellow-wight who yet
    abide—
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Why runners make lousy communists. In a word, individuality. It’s the one characteristic all runners, as different as they are, seem to share.... Stick with it. Push yourself. Keep running. And you’ll never lose that wonderful sense of individuality you now enjoy. Right, comrade?
    quoted in Guardian (London, Dec. 29, 1984)
