Famous quotes containing the word forty:

    The man who arrives young believes that he exercises his will because his star is shining. The man who only asserts himself at thirty has a balanced idea of what will power and fate have each contributed, the one who gets there at forty is liable to put the emphasis on will alone.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Still falls the Rain—
    Dark as the world of man, black as our loss—
    Blind as the nineteen hundred and forty nails
    Upon the Cross.
    Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964)

    Voice number one says,
    “I am the leaves. I am the martyred.
    Come unto me with death for I am the siren.
    I am forty young girls in green shells....”
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
