Famous quotes containing the word events:

    At all events there is in Brooklyn
    something that makes me feel at home.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    When the course of events shall have removed you to distant scenes of action where laurels not nurtured with the blood of my country may be gathered, I shall urge sincere prayers for your obtaining every honor and preferment which may gladden the heart of a soldier.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Reporters are not paid to operate in retrospect. Because when news begins to solidify into current events and finally harden into history, it is the stories we didn’t write, the questions we didn’t ask that prove far, far more damaging than the ones we did.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
