Weeks

Famous quotes containing the word weeks:

    I almost wished that I was still in prison. I felt I wasn’t ready to be out making
    decisions.... Even now over three years after my release, I can carry around fifty rand for
    two weeks and not spend it. I go into shops, but I find it hard to choose things.
    Feziwe Bookholane (b. 1942)

    Erasing the failure of weeks with level fingers,
    she sleeks the fine hair, combing: “You’ll look fine tomorrow!
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    Until I was twenty-five, I had no development at all. From my twenty-fifth year I date my life. Three weeks have scarcely passed, at any time between then and now, that I have not unfolded within myself. But I feel that I am now come to the inmost leaf of the bulb, and that shortly the flower must fall to the mould.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
