Spiders

Famous quotes containing the word spiders:

    I saw the spiders marching through the air,
    Swimming from tree to tree that mildewed day
    In latter August when the hay
    Came creaking to the barn.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    Only the rich remember the past,
    The strawberries once in the Apennines,
    Philadelphia that the spiders ate.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The mind cannot support moral chaos for long. Men are under as strong a compulsion to invent an ethical setting for their behavior as spiders are to weave themselves webs.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
