Famous quotes containing the word paper:

    What is to be done with people who can’t read a Sunday paper without messing it all up?... Show me a Sunday paper which has been left in a condition fit only for kite flying, and I will show you an antisocial and dangerous character who has left it that way.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    Poems stirred
    into paper coffee-cups, eaten
    with petals on rye in the
    sun—the cold shadows in back,
    and the traffic grinding the
    borders of spring ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls,—the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot- box once a year, but on what kind of a man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
