Famous quotes containing the word fired:

    We cannot but pity the boy who has never fired a gun; he is no more humane, while his education has been sadly neglected.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The beaux and the babies, the servant troubles, and the social aspirations of the other girls seemed to me superficial. My work did not. I was professional. I could earn my own money, or I could be fired if I were inefficient. It was something to get your teeth into. It was living.
    Edna Woolman Chase (1877–1957)

    Cursed be the hand that fired the shot,
    The frenzied brain that hatched the plot,
    Thy country’s Father slain
    By thee, thou worse than Cain!
    Richard Henry Stoddard (1825–1903)
