Famous quotes containing the word quarter:

    Like the water, the Walden ice, seen near at hand, has a green tint, but at a distance is beautifully blue, and you can easily tell it from the white ice of the river, or the merely greenish ice of some ponds, a quarter of a mile off.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the haunted house no quarter is given: in that respect
    It’s very much business as usual. The reductive principle
    Is no longer there, or isn’t enforced as much as before.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The most winning woman I ever knew was hanged for poisoning three little children for their insurance-money, and the most repellent man of my acquaintance is a philanthropist who has spent nearly a quarter of a million upon the London poor.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)
