Famous quotes containing the words space and/or address:

    As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    I believe the alphabet is no longer considered an essential piece of equipment for traveling through life. In my day it was the keystone to knowledge. You learned the alphabet as you learned to count to ten, as you learned “Now I lay me” and the Lord’s Prayer and your father’s and mother’s name and address and telephone number, all in case you were lost.
    Eudora Welty (b. 1909)
