Famous quotes containing the word stopped:

    Our day you will find that you have stopped regarding your baby as a totally unpredictable and therefore rather alarming novelty, and have begun instead to think of him as a person with tastes, preferences and characteristics of his own. When that happens you will know that he has moved on from being a “newborn” and has got himself settled into life.
    Penelope Leach (20th century)

    If the jests that you crack have an orthodox smack,
    You may get a bland smile from these sages;
    But should it, by chance, be imported from France,
    Half-a-crown is stopped out of your wages!
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    The tombstone told when she died.
    Her two surnames stopped me still.
    A virgin married at rest.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
