Famous quotes containing the word mooring:

    I’m mooring my rowboat
    at the dock of the island called God.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    For this is action, this is not being sure, this careless
    Preparing, sowing the seeds crooked in the furrow,
    Making ready to forget, and always coming back
    To the mooring of starting out, that day so long ago.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
