Famous quotes containing the words week and/or calendar:

    And although he had given himself a week to do it in and had told the landlady that he had finally decided to leave on Saturday, Ganin felt that neither this week not the next would change anything. Meanwhile nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    To divide one’s life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
    Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)
