Famous quotes containing the word shortened:

    Talent is nothing but a prolonged period of attention and a shortened period of mental assimilation.
    Konstantin Stanislavsky (1863–1938)

    Now they express
    All that’s content to wear a worn-out coat,
    All actions done in patient hopelessness,
    All that ignores the silences of death,
    Thinking no further than the hand can hold,
    All that grows old,
    Yet works on uselessly with shortened breath.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
