Months Probation

Famous quotes containing the words months and/or probation:

    Can no man tell me of my unthrifty son?
    ‘Tis full three months since I did see him last.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    So that the life of a writer, whatever he might fancy to the contrary, was not so much a state of composition, as a state of warfare; and his probation in it, precisely that of any other man militant upon earth,—both depending alike, not half so much upon the degrees of his WIT—as his RESISTANCE.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
