Famous quotes containing the words length and/or elbow:
“They raise their minds by brooding over and embellishing their sufferings, from one degree of fervid exaltation and dreary greatness to another, till at length they run amuck entirely, and whoever meets them would do well to run them thro the body.”
—Thomas Carlyle (17951881)
“Someone is always at my elbow reminding me that I am the grand-daughter of slaves. It fails to register depression with me. Slavery is sixty years in the past. The operation was successful and the patient is doing well, thank you. The terrible struggle that made me an American out of a potential slave said On the line! The Reconstruction said Go! I am off to a flying start and I must not halt in the stretch to look behind and weep.”
—Zora Neale Hurston (18911960)
