Famous quotes containing the word gathering:

    A gathering of Democrats is more sweaty, disorderly, offhand, and rowdy than a gathering of Republicans; it is also likely to be more cheerful, imaginative, tolerant of dissent, and skillful at the game of give-and-take. A gathering of Republicans is more respectable, sober, purposeful, and businesslike than a gathering of Democrats; it is also likely to be more self-righteous, pompous, cut-and-dried, and just plain boring.
    Clinton Rossiter (1917–1970)

    But gathering as we stray, a sense
    Of Life, so lovely and intense,
    It lingers when we wander hence,

    That those who follow feel behind
    Their backs, when all before is blind,
    Our joy, a rampart to the mind.
    John Masefield (1878–1967)

    ... gathering news in Russia was like mining coal with a hatpin.
    Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)
