Belong

Famous quotes containing the word belong:

    Sir: Between buccaneers, no ceremony; I take your dry goods, and in return I send you pimento; therefore, we are now even. I entertain no resentment.... Nothing can intimidate us; we run the same fortune, and our maxim is that the goods of this world belong to the strong and valiant.
    —For the State of Florida, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)

    He seemed to be of no particular race, or, in certain lights, to belong to some race that nobody else belonged to.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
