Anne Stevenson

  • There comes a time when you have to trust your own judgment, when you must close your eyes and let your instinct rule you.

  • A hobbyhorse can be a tiring ride for nonenthusiasts.

  • There's no friend like someone who has known you since you were five.

Anne Stevenson, English-born U.S. poet, writer
