Famous quotes containing the words stock exchange, exchange and/or stock:

    The freedom to make a fortune on the Stock Exchange has been made to sound more alluring than freedom of speech.
    John Mortimer (b. 1923)

    I can exchange opinion with any neighbouring mind,
    I have as healthy flesh and blood as any rhymer’s had,
    But O! my Heart could bear no more when the upland caught the wind;
    I ran, I ran, from my love’s side because my Heart went mad.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I’d rather I were dead and gone,
    And my body laid in grave,
    Ere a rusty stock o coal-black smith
    My maidenhead should have.
    Unknown. The Twa Magicians (l. 17–20)
