Double Points

Famous quotes containing the words double and/or points:

    Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Wi’ joy unfeigned brothers and sisters meet,
    An’ each for other’s weelfare kindly spiers:
    The social hours, swift-winged, unnoticed fleet;
    Each tells the uncos that he sees or hears;
    The parents, partial, eye their hopeful years;
    Anticipation forward points the view:
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)
