Writ Ordering Return

Famous quotes containing the words writ, ordering and/or return:

    We cannot learn the cipher
    That’s writ upon our cell;
    Stars help us by a mystery
    Which we could never spell.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Make gracious attempts at sanctifying Jenny,
    Supply cosmetics for the ordering of her frame,
    Think of her as Leda, as a goddess,
    Emptying a smile on Redkey, Indiana.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    At twelve, the disintegration of afternoon
    Began, the return to phantomerei, if not
    To phantoms. Till then, it had been the other way:
    One imagined the violet trees but the trees stood green,
    At twelve, as green as ever they would be.
    The sky was blue beyond the vaultiest phrase.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
