Famous quotes containing the words mines and/or school:
“The humblest observer who goes to the mines sees and says that gold-digging is of the character of a lottery; the gold thus obtained is not the same thing with the wages of honest toil. But, practically, he forgets what he has seen, for he has seen only the fact, not the principle, and goes into trade there, that is, buys a ticket in what commonly proves another lottery, where the fact is not so obvious.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“A drunkard would not give money to sober people. He said they would only eat it, and buy clothes and send their children to school with it.”
—Samuel Butler (18351902)
