Planets

Famous quotes containing the word planets:

    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)

    Why are all these dolls falling out of the sky?
    Was there a father?
    Or have the planets cut holes in their nets
    and let our childhood out,
    or are we the dolls themselves,
    born but never fed?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
