Famous quotes containing the word million:
“It is impossible for a stranger traveling through the United States to tell from the appearance of the people or the country whether he is in Toledo, Ohio, or Portland, Oregon. Ninety million Americans cut their hair in the same way, eat each morning exactly the same breakfast, tie up the small girls curls with precisely the same kind of ribbon fashioned into bows exactly alike; and in every way all try to look and act as much like all the others as they can.”
—Alfred Harmsworth, Lord Northcliffe (18651922)
“Thus every Part was full of Vice,
Yet the whole Mass a Paradise...
The worst of all the Multitude
Did something for the Common Good.
Employd a Million of the Poor,
And odious Pride a Million more...
... ...the very Poor
Livd better than the Rich before...”
—Bernard De Mandeville (16701733)
“The ancestral deed is thought and done,
And in a million Edens fall
A million Adams drowned in darkness,
For small is great and great is small,
And a blind seed all.”
—Edwin Muir (18871959)
