Famous quotes containing the words richardson and/or nicholas:

    Some children act as if they thought their parents had nothing to do, but to see them established in the world and then quit it.
    —Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    Chanuka and St. Nicholas Day came almost together this year—just one day’s difference. We didn’t make much fuss about Chanuka: we just gave each other a few little presents and then we had the candles. Because of the shortage of candles we only had them alight for ten minutes, but it is all right as long as you have the song.
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)
