Famous quotes containing the word places:

    As Jerome expanded, its chances for the title, “the toughest little town in the West,” increased and when it was incorporated in 1899 the citizens were able to support the claim by pointing to the number of thick stone shutters on the fronts of all saloons, gambling halls, and other places of business for protection against gunfire.
    —Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long- wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Coke and Blackstone hardly shed so much light into obscure spiritual places as the Hebrew prophets.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
