Famous quotes containing the word put:

    We should declare war on North Vietnam.... We could pave the whole country and put parking strips on it, and still be home by Christmas.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    It is dangerous to leave written that which is badly written. A chance word, upon paper, may destroy the world. Watch carefully and erase, while the power is still yours, I say to myself, for all that is put down, once it escapes, may rot its way into a thousand minds, the corn become a black smut, and all libraries, of necessity, be burned to the ground as a consequence. Only one answer: write carelessly so that nothing that is not green will survive.
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 25:32,33.
