Famous quotes containing the words parish, lady and/or abandoned:

    There is not a single crowned head in Europe whose talents or merit would entitle him to be elected a vestryman by the people of any parish in America.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    It is perfectly right for a gentleman to say “ladies and gentlemen,” but a lady should say, “gentlemen and ladies.” You mention your friend’s name before you do your own. I always feel like rebuking any woman who says, “ladies and gentlemen.” It is a lack of good manners.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    If you have abandoned one faith, do not abandon all faith. There is always an alternative to the faith we lose. Or is it the same faith under another mask?
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)
