Famous quotes containing the word years:

    The world is a puzzling place today. All these banks sending us credit cards, with our names on them. Well, we didn’t order any credit cards! We don’t spend what we don’t have. So we just cut them in half and throw them out, just as soon as we open them in the mail. Imagine a bank sending credit cards to two ladies over a hundred years old! What are those folks thinking?
    Sarah Louise Delany (b. 1889)

    Her fist of a face died clenched on a round pain;
    And sculptured Ann is seventy years of stone.
    These cloud-sopped, marble hands, this monumental
    Argument of the hewn voice, gesture and psalm,
    Storm me forever over her grave
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    But you were not living at all,
    and I was half-living,
    so where the years blight these others,
    we, who were not of the years,
    have escaped,
    we got nowhere.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
