Famous quotes containing the words almond and/or empire:

    I want to go back, out of the bad stories,
    But there’s always the possibility that the next one . . .
    No, it’s another almond tree, or a ring-swallowing frog . . .
    Yet they are beautiful as we people them
    With ourselves.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers, may at first sight appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers, but extremely fit for a nation that is governed by shopkeepers.
    Adam Smith (1723–1790)
