Famous quotes containing the words rule and/or british:

    Democracy don’t rule the world,
    You’d better get that in your head;
    This world is ruled by violence
    But I guess that’s better left unsaid.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    There is not a more disgusting spectacle under the sun than our subserviency to British criticism. It is disgusting, first, because it is truckling, servile, pusillanimous—secondly, because of its gross irrationality. We know the British to bear us little but ill will—we know that, in no case do they utter unbiased opinions of American books ... we know all this, and yet, day after day, submit our necks to the degrading yoke of the crudest opinion that emanates from the fatherland.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)
