Famous quotes containing the words airport, stevens and/or anchorage:

    It was like taking a beloved person to the airport and returning to an empty house. I miss the people. I miss the world.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    The hero is a feeling, a man seen
    As if the eye was an emotion,
    As if in seeing we saw our feeling
    In the object seen and saved that mystic
    Against the sight, the penetrating,
    Pure eye.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Family ... the home of all social evil, a charitable institution for comfortable women, an anchorage for house-fathers, and a hell for children.
    J. August Strindberg (1849–1912)
