Famous quotes containing the word period:

    There is always a period when a man with a beard shaves it off. This period does not last. He returns headlong to his beard.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)

    If there is any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of Revolution; when the old and the new stand side by side, and admit of being compared; when the energies of all men are searched by fear and by hope; when the historic glories of the old can be compensated by the rich possibilities of the new era?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    To give an accurate and exhaustive account of that period would need a far less brilliant pen than mine.
    Max Beerbohm (1872–1956)
