Famous quotes containing the word corner:

    Man torturing man is a fiend beyond description. You turn a corner in the dark and there he is. You congeal into a bundle of inanimate fear. You become the very soul of anaesthesia. But there is no escaping him. It is your turn now.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat less ignorant than it was when he entered it.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    I have never been able to accept the two great laws of humanity—that you’re always being suppressed if you’re inspired and always being pushed into the corner if you’re exceptional. I won’t be cornered and I won’t stay suppressed.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)
