Year Award

Famous quotes containing the words year and/or award:

    No matter how corrupt and unjust a convict may be, he loves fairness more than anything else. If the people placed over him are unfair, from year to year he lapses into an embittered state characterized by an extreme lack of faith.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
