Turns

Famous quotes containing the word turns:

    A few hours’ mountain climbing turns a rogue and a saint into two roughly equal creatures. Weariness is the shortest path to equality and fraternity—and liberty is finally added by sleep.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The loosening, for some people, of rigid role definitions for men and women has shown that dads can be great at calming babies—if they take the time and make the effort to learn how. It’s that time and effort that not only teaches the dad how to calm the babies, but also turns him into a parent, just as the time and effort the mother puts into the babies turns her into a parent.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    Then suddenly the noon turns afternoon
    And afternoon like an ill-written page
    Will fade, until the very stain of light
    Gathers in all the venom of the night
    The equilibrium of the thirtieth age.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
