Famous quotes containing the words jump and/or broad:

    If it were done when ‘tis done, then ‘twere well
    It were done quickly. If th’ assassination
    Could trammel up the consequence, and catch
    With his surcease success—that but this blow
    Might be the be-all and the end-all!—here,
    But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,
    We’d jump the life to come.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I did not find Liverpool ugly. Her stately public buildings, broad streets, public squares, and noble statues redeem her from the charge.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)
