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).
The Girls of Slender Means
"Jane’s life began to sprout once more, green with possibility. She recalled that she was only twenty-three, and smiled."
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
"Miss Brodie was now forty-three and this year when she looked so much thinner than when she had stood in the classroom or sat under the elm, her shape was pleasanter..."
"‘Oh, seventy. Isn’t it time you had a rest then?'"
