Famous quotes containing the words work, pay, support and/or equal:

    But it isn’t only the terror everywhere, and the fear of being conscious of it, that freezes people. It’s more than that. People know they are in a society dead or dying. They are refusing emotion because at the end of very emotion are property, money, power. They work and despise their work, and so freeze themselves. They love but know that it’s a half- love or a twisted love, and so they freeze themselves.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.
    Leona Helmsley (b. 1920)

    Criticism is a study by which men grow important and formidable at very small expense. The power of invention has been conferred by nature upon few, and the labour of learning those sciences which may, by mere labour, be obtained, is too great to be willingly endured; but every man can exert some judgment as he has upon the works of others; and he whom nature has made weak, and idleness keeps ignorant, may yet support his vanity by the name of critic.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Understand that your pain will never equal the injustice that is visited upon man, and, finally, listen to my advice. I do owe you advice since I just killed your husband.
    Pray to your God that he make you like stone.
    Albert Camus 1913–9160, French-Algerian novelist, dramatist, philosopher. Gallimard (1958)
