Home Plate

Famous quotes containing the words home and/or plate:

    This was the kind of man that was at home there; for, as near as I can learn, that has never been the residence, but rather the hunting-ground of the Indian.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Our press is certainly bankrupt in the “thrill of awe”Motherwise reverence: reverence for nickel plate and brummagem. Let us sincerely hope that this fact will remain a fact forever; for to my mind a discriminating irreverence is the creator and protector of human liberty.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
