Famous quotes containing the word lot:

    That milkmaid’s lot is better than mine, and her life merrier.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    Writers aren’t people exactly. Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person. It’s like actors, who try so pathetically not to look in mirrors. Who lean backward trying—only to see their faces in the reflecting chandeliers.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Once I had a professor say to me, “You know you have as much education as a lot of white people.” I answered, “Doctor, I have more education than most white people.”
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
