Famous quotes containing the words dependency, british and/or crown:

    The history of work has been, in part, the history of the worker’s body. Production depended on what the body could accomplish with strength and skill. Techniques that improve output have been driven by a general desire to decrease the pain of labor as well as by employers’ intentions to escape dependency upon that knowledge which only the sentient laboring body could provide.
    Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)

    Among the virtues and vices that make up the British character, we have one vice, at least, that Americans ought to view with sympathy. For they appear to be the only people who share it with us. I mean our worship of the antique. I do not refer to beauty or even historical association. I refer to age, to a quantity of years.
    William Golding (b. 1911)

    All pathways by His feet are worn,
    His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea;
    His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn;
    His cross is every tree.
    Joseph Mary Plunkett (1887–1916)
