Famous quotes containing the words john and/or don:

    It is as absurd to argue men, as to torture them, into believing.
    —Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801–1890)

    Rather would I have the love songs of romantic ages, rather Don Juan and Madame Venus, rather an elopement by ladder and rope on a moonlight night, followed by the father’s curse, mother’s moans, and the moral comments of neighbors, than correctness and propriety measured by yardsticks.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
