Earlier

Famous quotes containing the word earlier:

    ... less and less of luck, and more and more
    Of failure spreading back up the arm
    Earlier and earlier ...
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    I had a consuming ambition to possess a miller’s thumb. I believe I have never since wanted anything more desperately than I wanted my right thumb to be flattened as my father’s had become, during his earlier years of a miller’s life.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)

    Quintilian [educational writer in Rome around A.D. 100] thought that the earliest years of the child’s life were crucial. Education should start earlier than age seven, within the family. It should not be so hard as to give the child an aversion to learning. Rather, these early lessons would take the form of play—that embryonic notion of kindergarten.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)
