Famous quotes containing the words stevens, anchorage and/or airport:

    If in a shimmering room the babies came,
    Drawn close by dreams of fledgling wing,
    It was because night nursed them in its fold.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Flow, flow the waves hated,
    Accursed, adored,
    The waves of mutation:
    No anchorage is.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
