Safe

A safe (also called strongbox, coffer or kist) is a secure lockable box used for securing valuable objects against theft or damage. A safe is usually a hollow cuboid or cylinder, with one face removable or hinged to form a door. The body and door may be cast from metal (such as steel) or formed out of plastic through blow molding. A less secure version (only suitable for petty cash) is usually called a cash-box.

Famous quotes containing the word safe:

    No king on earth is as safe in his job as a Trade Union official. There is only one thing that can get him sacked; and that is drink. Not even that, as long as he doesn’t actually fall down.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    It is not quite safe to send out a venture in this kind, unless yourself go supercargo. Where a man goes, there he is; but the slightest virtue is immovable,—it is real estate, not personal; who would keep it, must consent to be bought and sold with it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I have not had major experience of talking with people once pronounced brain-dead, but I think we could be safe in saying he did not have great zip.
    Sir Howard Smith (b. 1919)
