Rolling Stones

Famous quotes containing the words rolling stones, rolling and/or stones:

    ... in the cities there are thousands of rolling stones like me. We are all alike; we have no ties, we know nobody, we own nothing. When one of us dies, they scarcely know where to bury him.... We have no house, no place, no people of our own. We live in the streets, in the parks, in the theatres. We sit in restaurants and concert halls and look about at the hundreds of our own kind and shudder.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Look, we’re all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house—in the bedroom he’s asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he’s rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he’s paying his taxes, in the yard he’s raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he’s making a bomb to blow it all up.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)

    our philosophy
    Which stops, as cold and bare
    As headless hair,
    As lifeless as your bones,
    Obtuse as meadow stones ...
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
