Famous quotes containing the word homes:

    Those comfortably padded lunatic asylums which are known, euphemistically, as the stately homes of England.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    You’re gonna take the rap and play along. You’re gonna make every exact move I tell you. If you don’t, I’ll kill you. And I’ll promise you one thing, it won’t be quick. I’ll break you first. You won’t be able to answer a telephone or open a door without thinking “This is it.” And when it comes, it still won’t be quick. And it won’t be pretty.
    —Geoffrey Homes (1902–1977)

    Pharisaism, obtuseness and tyranny reign not only in the homes of merchants and in jails; I see it in science, in literature, and among youth. I consider any emblem or label a prejudice.... My holy of holies is the human body, health, intellect, talent, inspiration, love and the most absolute of freedoms, the freedom from force and falsity in whatever forms they might appear.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
