Famous quotes containing the word couple:

    De gustibus non est disputandum;Mthat is, there is no disputing against HOBBY-HORSES; and, for my part, I seldom do ... for ... I keep a couple of pads myself, upon which, in their turns ... I frequently ride out and take the air.

    For a couple with young children, divorce seldom comes as a “solution” to stress, only as a way to end one form of pain and accept another.

    If we make a couple of discoveries here and there we need not believe things will go on like this for ever.... Just as we hit water when we dig in the earth, so we discover the incomprehensible sooner or later.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
