Life Saving Station

Famous quotes containing the words life, saving and/or station:

    Ordinary time is “quality time” too. Everyday activities are not just necessities that keep you from serious child rearing: they are the best opportunities for learning you can give your child...because her chief task in her first three years is precisely to gain command of the day-to-day life you take for granted.
    Amy Laura Dombro (20th century)

    The American people is out to get the kaiser. We are bending every nerve and every energy towards that end; anybody who gets in the way of the great machine the energy and devotion of a hundred million patriots is building towards the stainless purpose of saving civilization from the Huns will be mashed like a fly. I’m surprised that a collegebred man like you hasn’t more sense. Don’t monkey with the buzzsaw.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    To act the part of a true friend requires more conscientious feeling than to fill with credit and complacency any other station or capacity in social life.
    Sarah Ellis (1812–1872)
