Famous quotes containing the word company:

    Life is very narrow. Bring any club or company of intelligent men together again after ten years, and if the presence of some penetrating and calming genius could dispose them to frankness, what a confession of insanities would come up!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    “Come, boys, I know there’s kindly hearts among so good a
    crowd—
    To be in such good company would make a deacon proud.
    Hugh Antoine D’Arcy (1843–1925)

    I shall never send for a priest or recite an Act of Contrition in my last moments. I do not mind if I lose my soul for all eternity. If the kind of God exists Who would damn me for not working out a deal with Him, then that is unfortunate. I should not care to spend eternity in the company of such a person.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
