Famous quotes containing the words age and/or silver:

    My age fallen away like white swaddling
    Floats in the middle distance, becomes
    An inhabited cloud.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    A black pall, you know, with a silver cross on it, or R.I.P.—requiescat in pace—you know. That seems to me the most beautiful expression—I like it much better than ‘He is a jolly good fellow,’ which is simply rowdy.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
