Famous quotes containing the words axe and/or bad:

    The treasures of Cathay were never found.
    In this America, this wilderness
    Where the axe echoes with a lonely sound,
    The generations labor to possess
    And grave by grave we civilize the ground.
    Louis Simpson (b. 1923)

    Brutes are deprived of the high advantages which we have; but they have some which we have not. They have not our hopes, but they are without our fears; they are subject like us to death, but without knowing it; even most of them are more attentive than we to self-preservation, and do not make so bad a use of their passions.
    —Charles Louis de Secondat Montesquieu (1689–1755)
