Length Scales

Famous quotes containing the words length and/or scales:

    At length to hospital
    This man was limited,
    Where screens leant on the wall
    And idle headphones hung.
    Since he would soon be dead
    They let his wife come along
    And pour out tea, each day.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    In what camera do you taste
    Poison, in what darkness set
    Glittering scales and point
    The tipping tongue?
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
