Written

Famous quotes containing the word written:

    Now stamp the Lord’s Prayer on a grain of rice,
    A Bible-leaved of all the written woods
    Strip to this tree: a rocking alphabet,
    Genesis in the root, the scarecrow word,
    And one light’s language in the book of trees.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    And were an epitaph to be my story
    I’d have a short one ready for my own.
    I would have written of me on my stone:
    I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Most personal correspondence of today consists of letters the first half of which are given over to an indexed statement of why the writer hasn’t written before, followed by one paragraph of small talk, with the remainder devoted to reasons why it is imperative that the letter be brought to a close.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
