Famous quotes containing the words squares and/or sum:

    And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there.... Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    No, the five hundred was the sum they named
    To pay the doctor’s bill and tide me over.
    It’s that or fight, and I don’t want to fight
    I just want to get settled in my life....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
