Famous quotes containing the word cole:

    Has it ever occurred to you that friendship, at best, is a rather doubtful asset? I don’t want friends. I shall have worshippers and followers. People who will obey me because they recognize my greatness. Those who are loyal will be rewarded, and the others—destroyed.
    —Lester Cole (1904–1985)
