Famous quotes containing the word told:
“I thought of a mound in sweet Auburn
Where a little headstone stood;
How the flakes were folding it gently,
As did robins the babes in the wood.
Up spoke our own little Mabel,
Saying, Father, who makes it snow?
And I told of the good All-father
Who cares for us here below.”
—James Russell Lowell (18191891)
“Say, I wish you fellas coulda seen her face, though, when I walked in and told her, in the strictest confidence, of course, Honey, Im goin to the moon.... Well, she looked at me for a second and then said, What for? They aint got nothin there that we dont have more of right here in Texas.”
—Kurt Neumann (19061958)
“Still, I am prepared for this voyage, and for anything else you may care to mention.
Not that I am not afraid, but there is very little time left.
You have probably made travel arrangements, and know the feeling.
Suddenly, one morning, the little train arrives in the station, but oh, so big
It is! Much bigger and faster than anyone told you.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
