Famous quotes containing the word company:

    I do not mind if I lose my soul for all eternity. If the kind of God exists Who would damn me for not working out a deal with Him, then that is unfortunate. I should not care to spend eternity in the company of such a person.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    More company increases happiness, but does not lighten or diminish misery.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)

    The company of women of fashion will improve your manners, though not your understanding; and that complaisance and politeness, which are so useful in men’s company, can only be acquired in women’s.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
