Famous quotes containing the word place:
“Human life consists in mutual service. No grief, pain, misfortune, or broken heart, is excuse for cutting off ones life while any power of service remains. But when all usefulness is over, when one is assured of an unavoidable and imminent death, it is the simplest of human rights to choose a quick and easy death in place of a slow and horrible one.”
—Charlotte Perkins Gilman (18601935)
“The election makes me think of a story of a man who was dying. He had only two minutes to live, so he sent for a clergyman and asked him, Where is the best place to go to? He was undecided about it. So the minister told him that each place had its advantagesheaven for climate, and hell for society.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
“I place these numbed wrists to the pane
watching white uniforms whisk over
him in the tube-kept
fear what they will do in experiment”
—Michael S. Harper (b. 1938)
