Famous quotes containing the word columns:

    Rage is the only quality which has kept me, or anybody I have ever studied, writing columns for newspapers.
    Jimmy Breslin (b. 1929)

    The newspapers, I perceive, devote some of their columns specially to politics or government without charge; and this, one would say, is all that saves it; but as I love literature and to some extent the truth also, I never read those columns at any rate. I do not wish to blunt my sense of right so much.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
    When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
