Famous quotes containing the words breeder, outstanding, award and/or eclipse:

    Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Our party’s most outstanding mediocrity.

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
