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).
"‘Oh, seventy. Isn’t it time you had a rest then?'"
"A sense of black injustice of bodily decay came over him, but a rebellious voice crying in his heart ‘I am young, I am young,’ while carnal witness of his three score years and ten sank suddenly at the knees."
