Success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.
The towers themselves must be either round or polygonal. Square towers are sooner shattered by military engines, for the battering rams pound their angles to pieces but in the case of round towers they can do no harm being engaged as it were in driving wedges to their center.vitruvius
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.
We keep saying old people are Square. Then when they aren'twe don't like it!Peter Shaffer
Me seems the world is run quite out of Square, And being once amiss grows daily worse and worse.Edmund Spenser
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
A good, Square, stone house, placed on an eminence, facing the Bishop's Palace at Auckland.henry george liddell
“How can a man be said to have a country where he has no right to a Square inch of soil...”henry george
"And a year from now, I'll be very surprised if there is not some grand Square in Baghdad that is named after President Bush. There is no doubt that, with the exception of a very small number of people close to a vicious regime, the people of Iraq have been liberated and they understand that they've been liberated. And it is getting easier every day for Iraqis to express that sense of liberation."richard perle
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
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.

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.
When they [students] know how to construct a Square whose area is double the area of a given Square, tell them about the duplication of the cube -- how the wrath of Apollo could be appeased only by the construction of a cubical altar double the given altar, and how mathematicians long wrestled with this problem.
A little garden Square and wall'd; And in it throve an ancient evergreen, A yew-tree, and all round it ran a walk Of shingle, and a walk divided it.
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
Love, you shall perfect for me this child Whose small imperfect limits would keep breaking: Within new limits now, arrange the world And Square the circle: four walls and a ring.
We must let this town Square, which has added a significant dimension to our political process, continue to flourish.russ feingold
What right had I to value her less than the bodies in the Square? Suffering is not increased by numbers; one body can contain all the suffering the world can feel. I had judged like a journalist, in terms of quantity, and I had betrayed my own principles; I had become as engage as Pyle, and it seemed to me that no decision would ever be simple again.graham greene
