Famous quotes containing the word company:

    In not having an appointment at Harvard, I’m in the company of a great many people whose work I admire tremendously, in particular women of color.
    Catharine MacKinnon (b. 1946)

    In the old days, one married a wife; now one forms a company with a female partner, or moves in to live with a friend. And then one seduces the partner, or defiles the friend.
    J. August Strindberg (1849–1912)

    These studies which stimulate the young, divert the old, are an ornament in prosperity and a refuge and comfort in adversity; they delight us at home, are no impediment in public life, keep us company at night, in our travels, and whenever we retire to the country.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)
