Famous quotes containing the words time and/or warner:
“When peaceful clouds were reflected in the paddies
and the water buffalo stepped surely along terraces,
maybe fathers told their sons old tales.
When bombs smashed those mirrors
there was time only to scream.”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
“Lettuce is like conversation: it must be fresh and crisp, and so sparkling that you scarcely notice the bitter in it.”
—Charles Dudley Warner (18291901)
