Quote by Steven Wright
I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world...perhaps you've seen it.
This quote is meant to be a humorous exaggeration. The speaker is claiming to have the world's largest collection of seashells and suggests that they keep it spread across all the beaches of the world. By saying "perhaps you've seen it," they are playfully challenging the listener's belief in this extravagant claim. The quote highlights the absurdity of someone boasting about personal achievements or possessions in a grandiose manner.
I say let's go back to a truer use of the word 'freedom.'

I would add the freedom to bargain collectively. Those freedoms are under attack today.

It is believed by experienced doctors that the heat which oozes out of the hand, on being applied to the sick, is highly salutary. It has often appeared, while I have been soothing my patients, as if there was a singular property in my hands to pull and draw away from the affected parts aches and diverse impurities, by laying my hand upon the place, and extending my fingers toward it. Thus it is known to some of the learned that health may be implanted in the sick by certain gestures, and by contact, as some diseases may be communicated from one to another.
