Famous quotes containing the word split:

    Let my hands find such symbols, that can be
    Unnoticed in the casual light of day,
    Lying in wait for half a century
    To split chance lives across, that had not dreamed
    Such coasts had echoed, or such seabirds screamed.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
