Famous quotes containing the word period:

    Remember how often you have postponed minding your interest, and let slip those opportunities the gods have given you. It is now high time to consider what sort of world you are part of, and from what kind of governor of it you are descended; that you have a set period assigned you to act in, and unless you improve it to brighten and compose your thoughts, it will quickly run off with you, and be lost beyond recovery.
    Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121–180)

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

    This [new] period of parenting is an intense one. Never will we know such responsibility, such productive and hard work, such potential for isolation in the caretaking role and such intimacy and close involvement in the growth and development of another human being.
    —Joan Sheingold Ditzion and Dennie Palmer (20th century)
