Famous quotes containing the words thomas and/or ricks:

    Out of the sighs a little comes,
    But not of grief, for I have knocked down that
    Before the agony; the spirit grows,
    Forgets, and cries;
    A little comes, is tasted and found good....
    —Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    When a language creates—as it does—a community within the present, it does so only by courtesy of a community between the present and the past.
    —Christopher Ricks (b. 1933)
