Famous quotes containing the words years and/or early:

    What a lesson here for our world. One blast, thousands of years of civilization wiped out.
    Kurt Neumann (1906–1958)

    At the earliest ending of winter,
    In March, a scrawny cry from outside
    Seemed like a sound in his mind.
    He knew that he heard it,
    A bird’s cry, at daylight or before,
    In the early March wind.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
