Famous quotes containing the words endings and/or case:

    Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    A woman’s whole life is a history of the affections. The heart is her world: it is there her ambition strives for empire; it is there her avarice seeks for hidden treasures.

    Washington Irving (1783–1859)
