What are nights?

Famous quotes containing the word nights:

    Love is cheap. You can buy it anywhere. Lives are cheap. It’s money that’s dear. You have to work days and sit up nights thinking how to make money.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    That woman’s days were spent
    In ignorant good-will,
    Her nights in argument
    Until her voice grew shrill.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And the sun and the stove and the mice and the gnawed paper
    Made up the days and nights when I missed supper,
    Paring my nails, looking over the farbelow street
    Of tramways and bells. But one night I heard the feet.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
