Famous quotes containing the word event:

    I feared these present years,
    The middle twenties,
    When deftness disappears,
    And each event is
    Freighted with a source-encrusting doubt,
    And turned to drought.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    It is known that Whistler when asked how long it took him to paint one of his “nocturnes” answered: “All of my life.” With the same rigor he could have said that all of the centuries that preceded the moment when he painted were necessary. From that correct application of the law of causality it follows that the slightest event presupposes the inconceivable universe and, conversely, that the universe needs even the slightest of events.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    Surely one of the peculiar habits of circumstances is the way they follow, in their eternal recurrence, a single course. If an event happens once in a life, it may be depended upon to repeat later its general design.
    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)
