Both the 228 Incident (White Terror in Taiwan) and the June 4 Incident (Tiananmen Square Incident in Beijing) are like mirrors, reminding the leaders on both sides of the Taiwan Strait to engage in soul-searching and learn lessons.
As we enter the town, a very expansive Square opens before us, with a large expanse of water in the middle, for the public use… The Square itself is composed of magnificent houses which render Calcutta not only the handsomest town in Asia but one of the finest in the world.
GEORGE WASHINGTON, with his right arm upraised, sits his iron horse at the lower corner of Union Square * * * Should the General raise his left hand as he has raised his right, it would point to a quarter of the city that forms a haven for the oppressed and suppressed of foreign lands. In the cause of national or personal freedom they have found refuge here, and the patriot who made it for them sits his steed, overlooking their district, while he listens through his left ear to vaudeville that caricatures the posterity of his protégés.
Another damned, thick, Square book! Always scribble, scribble, scribble! Eh! Mr Gibbon?
Ah, sad and strange as in dark summer dawns The earliest pipe of half-awakened birds To dying ears, when unto dying eyes The casement slowly grows a glimmering Square; So sad, so strange, the days that are no more. Dear as remembered kisses after death, And sweet as those by hopeless fancy feigned On lips that are for others; deep as love, Deep as first love, and wild with all regret; O Death in Life, the days that are no more.Tennyson
But every page having an ample marge, And every marge enclosing in the midst A Square of text that looks a little blot.Tennyson

Newton supposed that all matter attracted other matter inversely according to the Square of the distance; and the hypothesis was found to account for the whole movements of the heavenly bodies; which all became verifications of what Newton supposed to be the law of the solar system. Adopt the hypothesis that Jesus was what He is represented, and the whole of the books and the history becomes a verification.james mccosh
I deliberately disregarded the right angle and rationalist architecture designed with ruler and Square to boldly enter the world of curves and straight lines offered by reinforced concrete.… This deliberate protest arose from the environment in which I lived, with its white beaches, its huge mountains, its old baroque churches, and the beautiful suntanned women.oscar niemeyer
“How can a man be said to have a country where he has no right to a Square inch of soil...”henry george
The width of a line may present the idea of infinity. An epigram may contain a world. In the same way, a small picture format may be much more living, much more leavening, stirring, awakening, than Square yards of wall space.hans hofmann
Think of Adam and Eve like an imaginary number, like the Square root of minus one: you can never see any concrete proof that it exists, but if you include it in your equations, you can calculate all manner of things that couldn’t be imagined without it.philip pullman
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a Square deal afterwards.theodore roosevelt
As for the Square at Meknes, where I used to go every day, it's even simpler: I do not see it at all anymore. All that remains is the vague feeling that it was charming, and these five words that are indivisibly bound together: a charming Square at Meknes. … I don't see anything any more: I can search the past in vain, I can only find these scraps of images and I am not sure what they represent, whether they are memories or just fiction.jean-paul sartre
Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. ‘Tis pedantry to estimate nations by the census, or by Square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.
We must treat each man on his worth and merits as a man. We must see that each is given a Square deal, because he is entitled to no more and should receive no less.theodore roosevelt
A simple way to determine whether the right to dissent in a particular society is being upheld is to apply the town Square test: Can a person walk into the middle of the town Square and express his or her views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm? If he can, then that person is living in a free society. If not, it's a fear society.
In many places, Christians of different denominations join for a procession [on Good Friday] through a city or town. The procession passes through the streets, usually with one or two people carrying a large wooden cross]], which may be placed in a Square or other area large enough to allow a short act of worship to take place.
We have more televangelists per Square mile here in this part of the country than I really care to think about. Maybe somebody out there will figure out how to spray for them.
If you choose to represent the various parts in life by holes upon a table, of different shapes, some circular, some triangular, some Square, some oblong, and the persons acting these parts by bits of wood of similar shapes, we shall generally find that the triangular person has got into the Square hole, the oblong into the triangular, and a Square person has squeezed himself into the round hole. The officer and the office, the doer and the thing done, seldom fit so exactly that we can say they were almost made for each other.sydney smith
A buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air The monkey thought that everything was on the Square The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back But the monkey grabbed his neck and said "Now listen, Jack..."
