Famous quotes containing the word columns:
“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 (18171862)
“Newspaperman: That was a magnificent work. There were these mass columns of Apaches in their war paint and feather bonnets. And here was Thursday leading his men in that heroic charge.
Capt. York: Correct in every detail.
Newspaperman: Hes become almost a legend already. Hes the hero of every schoolboy in America.”
—Frank S. Nugent (19081965)
“A few more days, and this essay will follow the Defensio Populi to the dust and silence of the upper shelf....

—Thomas Babington Macaulay (18001859)
