Famous quotes containing the words robinson and/or fort:
“Passion is here a soilure of the wits,
Were told, and Love a cross for them to bear;
Joy shivers in the corner where she knits
And Conscience always has the rocking-chair,
Cheerful as when she tortured into fits
The first cat that was ever killed by Care.”
—Edwin Arlington Robinson (18691935)
“I made him with these hands, and with these hands Ill destroy him.”
—Garrett Fort (19001945)
