Famous quotes containing the words runs and/or home:

    It is complete within seconds, that monument.
    The blood runs underground yet brings forth a tower.
    A multitude should gather for such an edifice.
    For a miracle one stands in line and throws confetti.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The fetish of the great university, of expensive colleges for young women, is too often simply a fetish. It is not based on a genuine desire for learning. Education today need not be sought at any great distance. It is largely compounded of two things, of a certain snobbishness on the part of parents, and of escape from home on the part of youth. And to those who must earn quickly it is often sheer waste of time. Very few colleges prepare their students for any special work.
    Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)
