Famous quotes containing the words college and/or cheltenham:

    We talked about and that has always been a puzzle to me
    why American men think that success is everything
    when they know that eighty percent of them are not
    going to succeed more than to just keep going and why
    if they are not why do they not keep on being
    interested in the things that interested them when
    they were college men and why American men different
    from English men do not get more interesting as they
    get older.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Here lies I and my three daughters,
    Killed by drinking the Cheltenham waters.
    If we had stuck to our Epsom salts
    We’d not be lying in these vaults.
    —Anonymous. From H. J. Loaring’s Curious Records (1872)
