Saturday Wide

Famous quotes containing the words saturday and/or wide:

    The return of the asymmetrical Saturday was one of those small events that were interior, local, almost civic and which, in tranquil lives and closed societies, create a sort of national bond and become the favorite theme of conversation, of jokes and of stories exaggerated with pleasure: it would have been a ready- made seed for a legendary cycle, had any of us leanings toward the epic.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Yet therein now doth lodge a noble peer,
    Great England’s glory and the world’s wide wonder,
    Whose dreadful name late through all Spain did thunder,
    Edmund Spenser (1552?–1599)
