Three Score & Ten, or Like Ice Under a Terrible SunLives in Literature · Compiled by W. B. Gooderham
Three Score & Ten is an anthology of literary quotes illustrating every year of one’s life from conception to death. Basically 0 – 70 (or minus 9 months to 70 if you prefer).
Ask The Dust
"I was twenty then. What the hell, I used to say, take your time, Bandini. "
The Big Sleep
"I’m thirty-three years old, went to college once and can still speak English if there’s any demand for it. There isn’t much in my trade."
Coming Up For Air
"I knew what I looked like already. A fat man of forty-five, in a grey herringbone suit a bit the worse for the wear and a bowler hat. Wife, two kids and a house in the suburbs written all over me."
