Famous quotes containing the words influences, additional and/or community:

    I don’t believe in villains or heroes, only in right or wrong ways that individuals are taken, not by choice, but by necessity or by certain still uncomprehended influences in themselves, their circumstances and their antecedents.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)

    The world will never be long without some good reason to hate the unhappy; their real faults are immediately detected, and if those are not sufficient to sink them into infamy, an additional weight of calumny will be superadded.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    The community has no bribe that will tempt a wise man.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
