Famous quotes containing the words list of, people, named, list and/or places:

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

    The truth is that every intelligent man, as you well know, dreams of being a gangster and ruling over society through violence alone. Since this is not as easy as the novels would have us believe, people generally resort to politics and join the cruelest party.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    who should moor at his edge
    And fare on afoot would find gates of no gardens,
    But the hill of dark underfoot diving,
    Closing overhead, the cold deep, and drowning.
    He is called Leviathan, and named for rolling,
    William Stanley Merwin (b. 1927)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    Schools and schoolmasters, as we have them today, are not popular as places of education and teachers, but rather prisons and turnkeys in which children are kept to prevent them disturbing and chaperoning their parents.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
