Famous quotes containing the word middle:

    When I was very young and the urge to be someplace was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch. When years described me as mature, the remedy prescribed was middle age. In middle age I was assured that greater age would calm my fever and now that I am fifty-eight perhaps senility will do the job. Nothing has worked.... In other words, I don’t improve, in further words, once a bum always a bum. I fear the disease is incurable.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    So here I am, in the middle way, having had twenty years—
    Twenty years largely wasted, the years of l’entre deux guerres—
    Trying to learn to use words, and every attempt
    Is a wholly new start, and a different kind of failure....
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    The blood of Abraham, God’s father of the chosen, still flows in the veins of Arab, Jew, and Christian, and too much of it has been spilled in grasping for the inheritance of the revered patriarch in the Middle East. The spilled blood in the Holy Land still cries out to God—an anguished cry for peace.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
