Famous quotes containing the words women, doubles, open and/or french:
“When women reach the age of maturity, Mother Nature sometimes overworks their frustration to the point of irrationalism. Like the middle-aged man...who finds himself looking longingly at a girl in her early twenties.”
—Mark Hanna, and Nathan Hertz. Dr. Von Loeb (Otto Waldis)
“Despots play their part in the works of thinkers. Fettered words are terrible words. The writer doubles and trebles the power of his writing when a ruler imposes silence on the people. Something emerges from that enforced silence, a mysterious fullness which filters through and becomes steely in the thought. Repression in history leads to conciseness in the historian, and the rocklike hardness of much celebrated prose is due to the tempering of the tyrant.”
—Victor Hugo (18021885)
“A politician is a statesman who approaches every question with an open mouth.”
—Adlai Stevenson (19001965)
“Tis all dependin whether
The ould engin howlds together
And it might now, Michael, so it might!”
—William Percy French (18541920)
