Million Light Years

Famous quotes containing the words million, light and/or years:

    Success is somebody else’s failure. Success is the American Dream we can keep dreaming because most people in most places, including thirty million of ourselves, live wide awake in the terrible reality of poverty.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    The earth had a single light afar,
    A flickering, human pathetic light,
    That was maintained against the night,
    It seemed to me, by the people there,
    With a Godforsaken brute despair.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Uncle Matthew’s four years in France and Italy between 1914 and 1918 had given him no great opinion of foreigners. “Frogs,” he would say, “are slightly better than Huns or Wops, but abroad is unutterably bloody and foreigners are fiends.”
    Nancy Mitford (1904–1973)
