Famous quotes containing the word years:

    But he answered his father, Listen! For all these years I have been working like a slave for you, and I have never disobeyed your command; yet you have never given me even a young goat so that I might celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours came back, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fatted calf for him!’
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 15:29,30.

    Miss Knag still aimed at youth, although she had shot beyond it, years ago.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    America is a great country. It has many shortcomings, many social inequalities, and it’s tragic that the problem of the blacks wasn’t solved fifty or even a hundred years ago, but it’s still a great country, a country full of opportunities, of freedom! Does it seem nothing to you to be able to say what you like, even against the government, the Establishment?
    Golda Meir (1898–1978)
