Famous quotes containing the word winters:

    I don’t want to smoke cigars or go to stag parties, wear jockey shorts or pick up the check.
    —Shelley Winters (b. 1922)

    Professors of literature, who for the most part are genteel but mediocre men, can make but a poor defense of their profession, and the professors of science, who are frequently men of great intelligence but of limited interests and education, feel a politely disguised contempt for it; and thus the study of one of the most pervasive and powerful influences on human life is traduced and neglected.
    —Yvor Winters (1900–1968)

    Reptilian green the wrinkled throat,
    Green as a bough of yew the beard;
    He bent his head, and so I smote;
    —Yvor Winters (1900–1968)
