Famous quotes containing the word starting:

    But even at the starting post, all sleek and new,
    I saw the wildness in her and I thought
    A vision of terror that it must live through
    Had shattered her soul.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    what most appals
    Is that tiny first shiver,
    That stumble, whereby
    We know beyond doubt
    They have almost run out
    And are starting to die.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    A hook shot kisses the rim and
    hangs there, helplessly, but doesn’t drop

    and for once our gangly starting center
    boxes out his man and times his jump

    perfectly, gathering the orange leather
    from the air like a cherished possession
    Edward Hirsch (b. 1950)
