Famous quotes containing the words number and/or random:

    I think, for the rest of my life, I shall refrain from looking up things. It is the most ravenous time-snatcher I know. You pull one book from the shelf, which carries a hint or a reference that sends you posthaste to another book, and that to successive others. It is incredible, the number of books you hopefully open and disappointedly close, only to take down another with the same result.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    And catch the gleaming of a random light,
    That tells me that the ship I seek is passing, passing.
    Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)
