Famous quotes containing the word address:

    The English, the plain English, of the politest address of a gentleman to a lady is, “I am now, dear Madam, your humble servant: Pray be so good as to let me be your Lord and Master.”
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    If you address a ghost as “Thing!”
    Or strike him with a hatchet,
    He is permitted by the King
    To drop all formal parleying—
    And then you’re sure to catch it!
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our necessities but of their advantages.
    Adam Smith (1723–1790)
