Famous quotes containing the word place:

    Who knows but this hill may one day be a Helvellyn, or even a Parnassus, and the Muses haunt here, and other Homers frequent the neighboring plains?... It was a place where gods might wander, so solemn and solitary, and removed from all contagion with the plain.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    No place is so strongly fortified that money could not capture it.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    Making social comment is an artificial place for an artist to start from. If an artist is touched by some social condition, what the artist creates will reflect that, but you can’t force it.
    Bella Lewitzky (b. 1916)
