### Famous quotes containing the word times:

“In the twentieth century, death terrifies men less than the absence of real life. All these dead, mechanized, specialized actions, stealing a little bit of life a thousand *times* a day until the mind and body are exhausted, until that death which is not the end of life but the final saturation with absence.”

—Raoul Vaneigem (b. 1934)

“Methinks a Man cannot, without a secret Satisfaction, consider the Glory of the present Age, which will shine as bright as any other in the History of Mankind. It is still big with great Events, and has already produced Changes and Revolutions which will be as much admired by Posterity, as any that have happened in the Days of our Fathers, or in the old *Times* before them.”

—Richard Steele (1672–1729)

“I will find out where she has gone,

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and *times* are done

The silver apples of the moon,

The golden apples of the sun.”

—William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
