Famous quotes containing the words homes and/or acres:

    I had the idea that there were two worlds. There was a real world as I called it, a world of wars and boxing clubs and children’s homes on back streets, and this real world was a world where orphans burned orphans.... I liked the other world in which almost everyone lived. The imaginary world.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    Those holy fields,
    Over whose acres walked those blessed feet
    Which fourteen hundred years ago were nailed
    For our advantage on the bitter cross.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
