Famous quotes containing the words event and/or january:

    I feared these present years,
    The middle twenties,
    When deftness disappears,
    And each event is
    Freighted with a source-encrusting doubt,
    And turned to drought.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    I have never been disappointed when I asked in a humble and sincere way for God’s help. I pray often. I think I pray more often since January 12th.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
