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 (18881959)
“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 (18741963)
“Peering, I heard the hooves come down the hill.
The posse passed, twelve horse; the leaders face
Was worn as limestone on an ancient sill.”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
