I believe that if the Tribune company ever tries to close down Wrigley Field that you will have a protest from every corner of the globe.
As much as the Pulitzer is the hallmark of journalism, I think what I love the most is when somebody says they took my column and it's in their wallet. I have had people open their wallet and show me a corner of a column.
When we started in television, there was that magic box in the corner of the room, and 'Oh my gosh - look what it's doing!'
A tall, thin old man waving a scorecard from the corner of his dugout. That's baseball.

There can never be such a thing as a free market, because it is human nature to cheat, monopolize, and buy off others so as to corner the market.
When I'm out with a group I hide in the corner and get legless. I just make sure my friends shield me.
I go down to the dive bar around the corner when I go out. I don't go to the showbiz parties.
I was enjoying myself writing, because I don't know what's going to happen when I take a ride around that corner. You don't know at all what you're going to find there. That can be thrilling when you read a book, especially when you're a kid and you're reading stories.
Call it a hunch, but I sense that many of us are not entirely comfortable with a world in which every single thing we buy creates a cloud of data. I'd like to have an option to not have a record of how much I tipped, or what I bought at 1:08 A.M. at a corner market in New York City.

A. N. Wilson

Sometimes when I'm going to the supermarket to get the coffee and cat litter, I get freaked out and see all these people staring, and you turn around and there's, like, 40 people all looking at you... and when you go around the corner, they're all following you! You start freaking out like a trapped animal.
I think we all have our own personality, unique and distinctive, and at the same time, I think that our own unique and distinctive personality blends with the wind, with the footsteps in the street, with the noises around the corner, and with the silence of memory, which is the great producer of ghosts.
The Chanel woman? I don't even need to see; I smell her from round the corner.
