Famous quotes containing the words exchange, american and/or stock:

    I should like not to exchange any of my life for money.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The American character looks always as if it had just had a rather bad haircut, which gives it, in our eyes at any rate, a greater humanity than the European, which even among its beggars has an all too professional air.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    I met a Californian who would
    Talk California—a state so blessed
    He said, in climate, none had ever died there
    A natural death, and Vigilance Committees
    Had had to organize to stock the graveyards
    And vindicate the state’s humanity.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
