Famous quotes containing the words houses and/or chapter:

    Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beating up a guy, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad. I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready. And when the people eat the stuff they raise, and living in the houses they build, I’ll be there, too.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
