Famous quotes containing the word place:

    And air-like leave no pression to be seen
    Where’er they met, or parting place has been.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    When great nations fear to expand, shrink from expansion, it is because their greatness is coming to an end. Are we, still in the prime of our lusty youth, still at the beginning of our glorious manhood, to sit down among the outworn people, to take our place with the weak and the craven? A thousand times no!
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

    The hand and foot that stir not, they shall find
    Sooner than all the rightful place to go;
    Jones Very (1831–1880)
