Famous quotes containing the word runs:
“The new man is born too old to tolerate the new world. The present conditions of life have not yet erased the traces of the past. We run too fast, but we still do not move enough.... He looks but he does not contemplate, he sees but he does not think. He runs away from time, which is made of thought, and yet all he can feel is his own time, the present.”
—Eugenio Montale (18961981)
“It is complete within seconds, that monument.
The blood runs underground yet brings forth a tower.
A multitude should gather for such an edifice.
For a miracle one stands in line and throws confetti.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“A cruel story runs on wheels, and every hand oils the wheels as they run.”
—Ouida [Marie Louise De La Ramée] (18391908)
