Famous quotes containing the words townsend warner, warner and/or townsend:

    When other helpers fail and comforts flee, when the senses decay and the mind moves in a narrower and narrower circle, when the grasshopper is a burden and the postman brings no letters, and even the Royal Family is no longer quite what it was, an obituary column stands fast.
    —Sylvia Townsend Warner (1893–1978)

    What a man needs in gardening is a cast-iron back, with a hinge in it.
    —Charles Dudley Warner (1829–1900)

    Dizzily down the abyss he wheels—
    So fell Darius. Upon his crown,
    In the midst of the barn-yard he came down,
    In a wonderful whirl of tangled strings,
    Broken braces and broken springs,
    Broken tail and broken wings,
    —John Townsend Trowbridge (1827–1916)
