Famous quotes containing the words runners and/or midnight:
“Why runners make lousy communists. In a word, individuality. Its the one characteristic all runners, as different as they are, seem to share.... Stick with it. Push yourself. Keep running. And youll never lose that wonderful sense of individuality you now enjoy. Right, comrade?”
—quoted in Guardian (London, Dec. 29, 1984)
“While they stand at home at the door he is dead already,
The only son is dead.
But the mother needs to be better,
She with thin form presently drest in black,
By day her meals untouchd, then at night fitfully sleeping, often waking,
In the midnight waking, weeping, longing with one deep longing,
O that she might withdraw unnoticed, silent from life escape and
To follow, to seek, to be with her dear dead son.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
