Greater Phyllopod Bed

Famous quotes containing the words greater and/or bed:

    However great a man’s fear of life, suicide remains the courageous act, the clear- headed act of a mathematician. The suicide has judged by the laws of chance—so many odds against one that to live will be more miserable than to die. His sense of mathematics is greater than his sense of survival.
    Graham Greene (1904–1991)

    There was an old man lived out in the wood,
    His trade was a-cutting of Broom, green Broom;
    He had but one son without thrift, without good,
    Who lay in his bed till ‘twas noon, bright noon.
    Unknown. Broom, Green Broom (l. 1–4)
