Famous quotes containing the word place:

    History counts its skeletons in round numbers.
    A thousand and one remains a thousand,
    as though the one had never existed:
    an imaginary embryo, an empty cradle,
    emptiness running down steps toward the garden,
    nobody’s place in line.
    Wislawa Szymborska (b. 1923)
