Famous quotes containing the word address:

    It wasn’t by accident that the Gettysburg address was so short. The laws of prose writing are as immutable as those of flight, of mathematics, of physics.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    Another success is the post-office, with its educating energy augmented by cheapness and guarded by a certain religious sentiment in mankind; so that the power of a wafer or a drop of wax or gluten to guard a letter, as it flies over sea over land and comes to its address as if a battalion of artillery brought it, I look upon as a fine meter of civilization.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Take a red book called TELEPHONE,
    size eight by four. There it sits.
    My red book, name, address and number.
    These are all people that I somehow own.
    Yet some of these names are counterfeit.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
