Years

Famous quotes containing the word years:

    I’m right here to tell you, mister. There ain’t nobody gonna push me off my land. My grandpa took up this land seventy years ago. My pa was born here. We was all born on it. And some of us was killed on it. And some of us died on it. That’s what makes it ourn. Bein’ born on it. And workin’ on it. And dyin’ on it. And not no piece of paper with writin’ on it.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    What a lesson here for our world. One blast, thousands of years of civilization wiped out.
    Kurt Neumann (1906–1958)

    ... it is only after years and years that you can speak of penury in the midst of opulence, of hunger in the midst of almost sinful plenty. You must never speak of the immediate experience unless and until you have learned its consequent value. Otherwise you grow old in bitterness which is barren and futile....
    E. M. Almedingen (b. 1898–?)
