Quotes About Lingering Stood For

Lingering Stood For Quotes: The death of a friendship was usually slow and insidious, like the wearing away of a hillside after years of too much rain.

Lingering Stood For Quote: The poet dreams of the classroom I dreamed I stood up in class And I said aloud: Teacher, Why is algebra important? Sit down, he said.

Lingering Stood For Saying: What cities, as great as this, have . . . promised themselves immortality! Posterity can hardly trace the situation of some. The sorrowful traveller wanders over the awful ruins of others. . . .

Sayings about Lingering Stood For: No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more.

Sayings about Lingering Stood For: The black middle-class in America is a prosperous community that is now larger in absolute terms than the black underclass.

Saying about Lingering Stood For: Of all the sights and sounds which attracted me on my first arrival to live in London in the mid-thirties, one combined operation left a lingering, individual spell.
