Famous quotes containing the word thousand:

    Luxury has been railed at for two thousand years, in verse and in prose, and it has always been loved.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)

    Thou art the unanswered question;
    Couldst see thy proper eye,
    Alway it asketh, asketh;
    And each answer is a lie.
    So take thy quest through nature,
    It through thousand natures ply;
    Ask on, thou clothed eternity;
    Time is the false reply.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Listen to me. You come into this town, and you think you’re headed somewhere, don’t you? You think you’re gonna get there with a gun, but you’re not. Get me. You know why, ‘cause you got thousand dollar bills pasted right across your eyes. And someday you’re gonna stumble and fall down in the gutter, right where the horses have been standin’, right where you belong.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
