Famous quotes containing the word stages:

    But parents can be understanding and accept the more difficult stages as necessary times of growth for the child. Parents can appreciate the fact that these phases are not easy for the child to live through either; rapid growth times are hard on a child. Perhaps it’s a small comfort to know that the harder-to-live-with stages do alternate with the calmer times,so parents can count on getting periodic breaks.
    Saf Lerman (20th century)

    Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
    Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell
    And the profit and loss.
    A current under sea
    Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell
    He passed the stages of his age and youth
    Entering the whirlpool.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Whoe’er has travelled life’s dull round,
    Where’er his stages may have been,
    May sigh to think he still has found
    The warmest welcome, at an inn.
    William Shenstone (1714–1763)
