Famous quotes containing the word owned:

    But not gold in commercial quantities,
    Just enough gold to make the engagement rings
    And marriage rings of those who owned the farm.
    What gold more innocent could one have asked for?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Speak as you think, be what you are, pay your debts of all kinds. I prefer to be owned as sound and solvent, and my word as good as my bond, and to be what cannot be skipped, or dissipated, or undermined, to all the eclat in the universe. This reality is the foundation of friendship, religion, poetry, and art.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I was a closet pacifier advocate. So were most of my friends. Unknown to our mothers, we owned thirty or forty of those little suckers that were placed strategically around the house so a cry could be silenced in less than thirty seconds. Even though bottles were boiled, rooms disinfected, and germs fought one on one, no one seemed to care where the pacifier had been.
    Erma Bombeck (20th century)
