Infant Mice

Famous quotes containing the words infant and/or mice:

    Q: Have you made personal sacrifices for the sake of your career?

    And the sun and the stove and the mice and the gnawed paper
    Made up the days and nights when I missed supper,
    Paring my nails, looking over the farbelow street
    Of tramways and bells. But one night I heard the feet.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
