Famous quotes containing the words city of, corporation, city and/or london:
“I hope there will be no effort to put up a shaft or any monument of that sort in memory of me or of the other women who have given themselves to our work. The best kind of a memorial would be a school where girls could be taught everything useful that would help them to earn an honorable livelihood; where they could learn to do anything they were capable of, just as boys can. I would like to have lived to see such a school as that in every great city of the United States.”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
“It is truly enough said that a corporation has no conscience; but a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation with a conscience.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I dont think there is anything on earth more wonderful than those wistful incomplete friendships one makes now and then in an hours talk. You never see the people again, but the lingering sense of their presence in the world is like the glow of an unseen city at nightmakes you feel the teemingness of it all.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
I had not thought death had undone so many.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
