Famous quotes containing the words posts and/or corner:

    Get posts and letters, and make friends with speed;
    Never so few, and never yet more need.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    At this very moment,... the most frightful horrors are taking place in every corner of the world. People are being crushed, slashed, disembowelled, mangled; their dead bodies rot and their eyes decay with the rest.

These are distressing facts; but do we enjoy life any the less because of them? Most certainly we do not.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
