Stages

Famous quotes containing the word stages:

    Whoe’er has travelled life’s dull round,
    Where’er his stages may have been,
    May sigh to think he still has found
    The warmest welcome, at an inn.
    William Shenstone (1714–1763)

    Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
    Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell
    And the profit and loss.
    A current under sea
    Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell
    He passed the stages of his age and youth
    Entering the whirlpool.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    The four stages of man are infancy, childhood, adolescence and obsolescence.
    Art Linkletter (20th century)
