Famous quotes containing the words man and/or falling:

    A man who has no office to go to—I don’t care who he is—is a trial of which you can have no conception.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    To be shelterless and alone in the open country, hearing the wind moan and watching for day through the whole long weary night; to listen to the falling rain, and crouch for warmth beneath the lee of some old barn or rick, or in the hollow of a tree; are dismal things—but not so dismal as the wandering up and down where shelter is, and beds and sleepers are by thousands; a houseless rejected creature.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
