Famous quotes containing the words firms, program and/or trading:

The rest were secretaries, typists, file clerks, or receptionists in insurance firms or banks, preferably those owned or run by the family, but respectable enough if the boss was an upstanding Christian member of the community.
    Barbara Howar (b. 1934)

    The blacksmith dropped his hammer, the carpenter his plane, the mason his trowel, the farmer his sickle, the baker his loaf, and the tapster his bottle. All were off for the mines, some on horses, some on carts, and some on crutches, and one went in a litter.
    —For the State of California, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    His farm was “grounds,” and not a farm at all;
    His house among the local sheds and shanties
    Rose like a factor’s at a trading station.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
