Previous

Famous quotes containing the word previous:

    All we know
    Is that we are a little early, that
    Today has that special, lapidary
    Todayness that the sunlight reproduces
    Faithfully in casting twig-shadows on blithe
    Sidewalks. No previous day would have been like this.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The plot was most interesting. It belonged to no particular age, people, or country, and was perhaps the more delightful on that account, as nobody’s previous information could afford the remotest glimmering of what would ever come of it.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    No man tastes pleasures truly, who does not earn them by previous business; and few people do business well, who do nothing else.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
