Famous quotes containing the words length and/or spoke:

    You will, I am sure, agree with me that ... if page 534 only finds us in the second chapter, the length of the first one must have been really intolerable.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    New words, with little or no wit;

    The ignorant for current took ‘em;
