Planets

Famous quotes containing the word planets:

    Perhaps when distant people on other planets pick up some wave-length of ours all they hear is a continuous scream.
    Iris Murdoch (b. 1919)

    I would sell my life to avoid
    the pain that begins in the crib
    with its bars or perhaps
    with your first breath
    when the planets drill
    your future into you....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Marriage is the clue to human life, but there is no marriage apart from the wheeling sun and the nodding earth, from the straying of the planets and the magnificence of the fixed stars.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
