Famous quotes containing the word present:
“I dont suppose theres a man going, as possesses the fondness for youth that I do. Theres youth to the amount of eight hundred pound a-year, at Dotheboys Hall at this present time. Id take sixteen hundred pound worth, if I could get em, and be as fond of every individual twenty pound among em as nothing should equal it!”
—Charles Dickens (18121870)
“I think that a young state, like a young virgin, should modestly stay at home, and wait the application of suitors for an alliance with her; and not run about offering her amity to all the world; and hazarding their refusal.... Our virgin is a jolly one; and tho at present not very rich, will in time be a great fortune, and where she has a favorable predisposition, it seems to me well worth cultivating.”
—Benjamin Franklin (17061790)
“Any man that resists the present tides that run in the world, will find himself thrown upon a shore so high and barren that it will seem he has been separated from his human kind forever.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
