Famous quotes containing the word place:

    A belief which leaves no place for doubt is not a belief; it is a superstition.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)

    Your notions of friendship are new to me; I believe every man is born with his quantum, and he cannot give to one without robbing another. I very well know to whom I would give the first place in my friendship, but they are not in the way, I am condemned to another scene, and therefore I distribute it in pennyworths to those about me, and who displease me least, and should do the same to my fellow prisoners if I were condemned to a jail.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    When your fathers fixed the place of GOD,
    And settled all the inconvenient saints,
    Apostles, martyrs, in a kind of Whipsnade,
    Then they could set about imperial expansion
    Accompanied by industrial development.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
