Famous quotes containing the word report:

    In clear weather the laziest may look across the Bay as far as Plymouth at a glance, or over the Atlantic as far as human vision reaches, merely raising his eyelids; or if he is too lazy to look after all, he can hardly help hearing the ceaseless dash and roar of the breakers. The restless ocean may at any moment cast up a whale or a wrecked vessel at your feet. All the reporters in the world, the most rapid stenographers, could not report the news it brings.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If he had been sent to check out Bluebeard’s castle, he would have come back with a glowing report about the admirable condition of the cutlery.
    Mary McGrory (b. 1918)

    Thou wrong’st a gentleman, who is as far
    From thy report as thou from honor, and
    Solicits here a lady that disdains
    Thee and the devil alike.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
