Famous quotes containing the word clerk:

    A clerk ther was of Oxenford also
    That unto logyk hadde longe ygo.
    As leene was his hors as is a rake,
    And he nas nat right fat, I undertake,
    But looked holwe, and therto sobrely.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    You can’t be what you don’t see. I didn’t think about being a doctor. I didn’t even think about being a clerk in a store—I’d never seen a black clerk in a clothing store.
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
