Famous quotes containing the words douglas, kent and/or hall:

    If you want to know about a man you can find out an awful lot by looking at who he married.
    —Kirk Douglas (b. 1916)

    Main Street was never the same. I read Gide and tried to
    translate Proust. Now nothing is real except French wine.
    For absurdity is reality, my loneliness unreal, my mind tired.
    And I shall die an old Parisian.
    —Conrad Kent Rivers (1933–1968)

    I was afraid the waking arm would break
    From the loose earth and rub against his eyes
    A fist of trees, and the whole country tremble
    In the exultant labor of his rise;
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)
