Famous quotes containing the word store:

    I keep thinking that what I need
    to do is buy my leg back.
    Surely it is for sale somewhere,
    poor broken tool, poor ornament.
    It might be in a store somewhere beside a lady’s scarf.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Modern man, if he dared to be articulate about his concept of heaven, would describe a vision which would look like the biggest department store in the world, showing new things and gadgets, and himself having plenty of money with which to buy them. He would wander around open-mouthed in this heaven of gadgets and commodities, provided only that there were ever more and newer things to buy, and perhaps that his neighbors were just a little less privileged than he.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
