Famous quotes containing the words met and/or convention:

    A fool, A fool! I met a fool i’ the forest,
    A motley fool. A miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool,
    Who laid him down and basked him in the sun,
    And railed on Lady Fortune in good terms,
    In good set terms, and yet a motley fool.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The metaphor of the king as the shepherd of his people goes back to ancient Egypt. Perhaps the use of this particular convention is due to the fact that, being stupid, affectionate, gregarious, and easily stampeded, the societies formed by sheep are most like human ones.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)
