Famous quotes containing the words gate and/or starting:

    Leave now
    The shut gate and the decomposing wall:
    The gentle serpent, green in the mulberry bush,
    Riots with his tongue through the hush
    Sentinel of the grave who counts us all!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The toughest thing about success is that you’ve got to keep on being a success. Talent is only a starting point in this business. You’ve got to keep on working that talent. Someday I’ll reach for it and it won’t be there.
    Irving Berlin (1888–1989)
