Suspension quotes

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteRESPITE, n. A suspension of hostilities against a sentenced assassin, to enable the Executive to determine whether the murder may not have been done by the prosecuting attorney. Any break in the continuity of a disagreeable expectation.



Altgeld upon his incandescend bed Lay, an attendant demon at his head.



"O cruel cook, pray grant me some relief -- Some respite from the roast, however brief."



"Remember how on earth I pardoned all Your friends in Illinois when held in thrall."



"Unhappy soul! for that alone you squirm O'er fire unquenched, a never-dying worm.



"Yet, for I pity your uneasy state, Your doom I'll mollify and pains abate.



"Naught, for a season, shall your comfort mar, Not even the memory of who you are."



Throughout eternal space dread silence fell; Heaven trembled as Compassion entered Hell.



"As long, sweet demon, let my respite be As, governing down here, I'd respite thee."



"As long, poor soul, as any of the pack You thrust from jail consumed in getting back."



A genial chill affected Altgeld's hide While they were turning him on t'other side. --Joel Spate Woop

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteIn jail a man has no personality. He is a minor disposal problem and a few entries on reports. Nobody cares who loves or hates him, what he looks like, what he did with his life. Nobody reacts to him unless he gives trouble. Nobody abuses him. All that is asked of him is that he go quietly to the right cell and remain quiet when he gets there. There is nothing to fight against, nothing to be mad at. The jailers are quiet men without animosity or sadism. All this stuff you read about men yelling and screaming, beating against the bars, running spoons along them, guards rushing in with clubs -- all that is for the big house. A good jail is one of the quietest places in the world. Life in jail is in suspension.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteI cannot accept the doctrine that in poetry there is a ''suspension of belief.'' A poet must never make a statement simply because it is sounds poetically exciting; he must also believe it to be true.

 W. H. Auden quotes (English born American Poet, Dramatist and Editor who achieved early fame in the 1930s as a hero of the left during the Great Depression. 1907-1973)
