Famous quotes containing the word news:

    To have news value is to have a tin can tied to one’s tail.
    —T.E. (Thomas Edward)

    If you chance to live and move and have your being in that thin stratum in which the events that make the news transpire,—thinner than the paper on which it is printed,—then these things will fill the world for you; but if you soar above or dive below that plane, you cannot remember nor be reminded of them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
    Bible: Hebrew Proverbs, 25:25.
