150000000 Year Old Story of Limestone

Famous quotes containing the words story, year and/or limestone:

    When a book, any sort of book, reaches a certain intensity of artistic performance it becomes literature. That intensity may be a matter of style, situation, character, emotional tone, or idea, or half a dozen other things. It may also be a perfection of control over the movement of a story similar to the control a great pitcher has over the ball.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    They tapped at my eyelids and touched my lips with an invitation to grief.
    But it was no reason I had to go because they had to go.
    Now up, my knee, to keep on top of another year of snow.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Peering, I heard the hooves come down the hill.
    The posse passed, twelve horse; the leader’s face
    Was worn as limestone on an ancient sill.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
