Lapse

Famous quotes containing the word lapse:

    There is something even in the lapse of time by which time recovers itself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When words fail us or, quite the opposite, when they rush from our mouths faster than we would like, we can console ourselves that if no single moment is going to define our relationship with a child, neither can a single lapse of good judgment or patience destroy it.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    The longest day must have its close—the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning. An eternal, inexorable lapse of moments is ever hurrying the day of the evil to an eternal night, and the night of the just to an eternal day.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)
