What is set?

Famous quotes containing the word set:

    My curse on plays
    That have to be set up in fifty ways,
    On the day’s war with every knave and dolt,
    Theater business, management of men.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    All I’m telling you is that that little creature in there has as much right to live as you do. Don’t forget, you invaded his world. You sank a pipe six miles into the ground and when he climbed up you set dogs on him, shot him.
    Richard Fielding, and Lee Sholem. Superman (George Reeves)

    There are incalculable resources in the human spirit, once it has been set free.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
