Famous quotes containing the word throw:

    What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down.
    Frances Goodrich (1891–1984)

    Underneath this sable hearse
    Lies the subject of all verse:
    Sidney’s sister, Pembroke’s mother;
    Death ere thou has slain another,
    Fair, and learned, and good as she,
    Time shall throw a dart at thee.
    William Browne (1591–1643)

    To throw obstacles in the way of a complete education is like putting out the eyes; to deny the rights of property is like cutting off the hands. To refuse political equality is like robbing the ostracized of all self-respect, of credit in the market place, of recompense in the world of work, of a voice in choosing those who make and administer the law, a choice in the jury before whom they are tried, and in the judge who decides their punishment.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)
