Famous quotes containing the words single and/or selling:

    I, who cannot stay in my chamber for a single day without acquiring some rust,... confess that I am astonished at the power of endurance, to say nothing of the moral insensibility, of my neighbors who confine themselves to shops and offices the whole day for weeks and months, aye, and years almost together. I know not what manner of stuff they are of,—sitting there now at three o’clock in the afternoon, as if it were three o’clock in the morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The only person really soiled with trade
    I ever stumbled on in old New Hampshire
    Was someone who had just come back ashamed
    From selling things in California.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
