4 Real Estate Quotes from Literature

"What we call real estate--the solid ground to build a house on--is the broad foundation on which nearly all the guilt of this world rests." ~ The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne Babbitt spoke well--and often--at these orgies of commercial righteousness about the "realtor's function as a seer of the future development of the community, and as a prophetic engineer clearing the pathway for inevitable changes"--which meant that a real-estate broker could make money by guessing which way the town would grow. This guessing he called Vision. ~ Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis "It is a comfortable feeling to know that you stand on your own ground. Land is about the only thing that can't fly away." ~ The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope One of these flaws was, that having been long taught by his father to over-reach everybody he had imperceptibly acquired a love of over-reaching that venerable monitor himself. The other, that from his early habits of considering everything as a question of property, he had gradually come to look, with impatience, on his parent as a certain amount of personal estate, which had no right whatever to be going at large, but ought to be secured in that particular description of iron safe which is commonly called a coffin, and banked in the grave. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
