Hit Number

Famous quotes containing the words hit and/or number:

    And then a Plank in Reason, broke,
    And I dropped down, and down—
    And hit a World, at every plunge,
    And Finished knowing—then—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    My tendency to nervousness in my younger days, in view of the fact of a number of near relatives on both my father’s and mother’s side of the house having become insane, gave some serious uneasiness. I made up my mind to overcome it.... In the cross-examination of witnesses before a crowded court-house ... I soon found I could control myself even in the worst of testing cases. Finally, in battle.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
