Famous quotes containing the words business, stuart and/or school:

    My business is stanching blood and feeding fainting men; my post the open field between the bullet and the hospital. I sometimes discuss the application of a compress or a wisp of hay under a broken limb, but not the bearing and merits of a political movement. I make gruel—not speeches; I write letters home for wounded soldiers, not political addresses.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)

    Marriage is the only actual bondage known to our law. There remain no legal slaves, except the mistress of every house.
    —John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)

    Loosed betwixt eye and lid, the swimming beams
    Of memory, blind school of cuttlefish,
    Rise to the air, plunge to the cold streams....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
