Famous quotes containing the words company and/or ferry:

    I shall never send for a priest or recite an Act of Contrition in my last moments. I do not mind if I lose my soul for all eternity. If the kind of God exists Who would damn me for not working out a deal with Him, then that is unfortunate. I should not care to spend eternity in the company of such a person.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    And my eyes are blue;
    So ferry me across the water,
    Do, boatman, do!”

    “Step into my ferry-boat,
    Be they black or blue,
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
