Quotes from Saint Paulites
“Who does not love a Minnesota winter, with its clear bracing air—its blue sky and its life-giving atmosphere?... Fear not then, the blast of coming winter. Pile on the wood, let the cracking fire shed its heat while the Northwestern winds howl about our doors.”
—Saint Paul Minnesota Times, November 20, 1854
“We are more casual about qualifying the people we allow to act as advocates in the courtroom than we are about licensing electricians.”
—Warren Burger, Supreme Court justice
“You can’t have an underworld without an overworld, if you know what I mean.”
