Famous quotes containing the word store:

    Farmers in overalls and wide-brimmed straw hats lounge about the store on hot summer days, when the most common sound is the thump-thump-thump of a hound’s leg on the floor as he scratches contentedly. Oldtime hunters say that fleas are a hound’s salvation: his constant twisting and clawing in pursuit of the tormentors keeps his joints supple.
    —Administration in the State of Arka, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    For many are the trees of God that grow
    In Paradise, and various, yet unknown
    To us; in such abundance lies our choice
    As leaves a greater store of fruit untouched,
    Still hanging incorruptible, till men
    Grow up to their provision, and more hands
    Help to disburden Nature of her bearth.”
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Here, lads, we live by the law of the taiga. But even here people manage to live. D’you know who are the ones the camps finish off? Those who lick other men’s left-overs, those who set store by the doctors, and those who peach on their mates.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)
