Famous quotes containing the words places, united, states, named and/or edison:

    There are two places in the world where men can most effectively disappear—the city of London and the South Seas.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    The rising power of the United States in world affairs ... requires, not a more compliant press, but a relentless barrage of facts and criticism.... Our job in this age, as I see it, is not to serve as cheerleaders for our side in the present world struggle but to help the largest possible number of people to see the realities of the changing and convulsive world in which American policy must operate.
    James Reston (b. 1909)

    That Cabot merely landed on the uninhabitable shore of Labrador gave the English no just title to New England, or to the United States generally, any more than to Patagonia.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We named you Joy.
    I, who was never quite sure
    about being a girl, needed another
    life, another image to remind me.
    And this was my worst guilt; you could not cure
    nor soothe it. I made you to find me.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Genius is one per cent inspiration, ninety-nine per cent perspiration.
    —Thomas Alva Edison (1847–1931)
