Famous quotes containing the word stamps:

    Even in harmonious families there is this double life: the group life, which is the one we can observe in our neighbour’s household, and, underneath, another—secret and passionate and intense—which is the real life that stamps the faces and gives character to the voices of our friends. Always in his mind each member of these social units is escaping, running away, trying to break the net which circumstances and his own affections have woven about him.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    What is the worst of woes that wait on age?
    What stamps the wrinkle deeper on the brow?
    To view each loved one blotted from life’s page,
    And be alone on earth, as I am now.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    In Stamps the segregation was so complete that most Black children didn’t really, absolutely know what whites looked like.
    Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
