Famous quotes containing the word stevens:

    It was when the trees were leafless first in November
    And their blackness became apparent, that one first
    Knew the eccentric to be the base of design.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    It is as if being was to be observed,
    As if, among the possible purposes
    Of what one sees, the purpose that comes first,

    The property of the moon, what it evokes.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
