Famous quotes containing the word names:

    I do not see why, since America and her autumn woods have been discovered, our leaves should not compete with the precious stones in giving names to colors; and, indeed, I believe that in course of time the names of some of our trees and shrubs, as well as flowers, will get into our popular chromatic nomenclature.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A knowledge that people live close by is,
    I think, enough. And even if only first names are ever exchanged
    The people who own them seem rock-true and marvelously self-sufficient.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Holding myself the humblest of all whose names were before the convention, I feel in especial need of the assistance of all.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
