Famous quotes containing the words hospital and/or queen:

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “The horror of that moment,” the King went on, “I shall never, never forget!”
    “You will, though,” the Queen said, “if you don’t make a memorandum of it.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
