Famous quotes containing the words shoal, sandy and/or point:

    If it were done when ‘tis done, then ‘twere well
    It were done quickly. If th’ assassination
    Could trammel up the consequence, and catch
    With his surcease success—that but this blow
    Might be the be-all and the end-all!—here,
    But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,
    We’d jump the life to come.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    So near along life’s stream are the fountains of innocence and youth making fertile its sandy margin; and the voyageur will do well to replenish his vessels often at these uncontaminated sources.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The point is, that the function of the novel seems to be changing; it has become an outpost of journalism; we read novels for information about areas of life we don’t know—Nigeria, South Africa, the American army, a coal-mining village, coteries in Chelsea, etc. We read to find out what is going on. One novel in five hundred or a thousand has the quality a novel should have to make it a novel—the quality of philosophy.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)
