Famous quotes containing the words scored and/or runs:

    Like those before it, this decade takes on the marketable subtleties of a private phenomenon: parenthood. Mothers are being teased out of the home and into the agora for a public trial. Are we doing it right? Do we have the right touch? The right toys? The right lights? Is our child going to grow up tall, thin and bright? Something private, and precious, has become public, vulgarized—and scored by impersonal judges.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)

    Time is a horse that runs in the heart, a horse
    Without a rider on a road at night.
    The mind sits listening and hears it pass.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
