Famous quotes containing the words lloyd, coffee, house, related and/or names:

    I am in earnest—I will not equivocate—I will not excuse—I will not retreat a single inch—and I will be heard!
    —William Lloyd Garrison (1805–1879)

    you who put gum in my coffee cup
    and worms in my Jell-O, you who let me pretend
    you were daddy of the poets, witchman, you stand
    for all, for all the bad dead, a Salvation Army Band
    who plays for no one. I am cement. The bird in me is blind
    as I knife out your name and all your dead kind.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Just the same as a month before,—
    The house and the trees,
    The barn’s brown gable, the vine by the door,—
    Nothing changed but the hives of bees.
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    No being exists or can exist which is not related to space in some way. God is everywhere, created minds are somewhere, and body is in the space that it occupies; and whatever is neither everywhere nor anywhere does not exist. And hence it follows that space is an effect arising from the first existence of being, because when any being is postulated, space is postulated.
    Isaac Newton (1642–1727)

    Oh yes, children often commit murders. And quite clever ones, too. Some murderers, particularly the distinguished ones who are going to make great names for themselves, start amazingly early.... Like mathematicians and musicians. Poets develop later.
    John Lee Mahin (1902–1984)
