Famous quotes containing the word present:
“Art for arts sake? I should think so, and more so than ever at the present time. It is the one orderly product which our middling race has produced. It is the cry of a thousand sentinels, the echo from a thousand labyrinths, it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden ... it is the best evidence we can have of our dignity.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
“There is some pleasure even in words, when they bring forgetfulness of present miseries.”
—Sophocles (497406/5 B.C.)
“The flags are natures newly found.
Rifles grow sharper on the sight.
There is a rumble of autumnal marching,
From which no soft sleeve relieves us.
Fate is the present desperado.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
