Famous quotes containing the words empire and/or fake:

    Thy blood and virtue
    Contend for empire in thee, and thy goodness
    Share with thy birthright! Love all, trust a few,
    Do wrong to none. Be able for thine enemy
    Rather in power than use, and keep thy friend
    Under thy own life’s key. Be checked for silence
    But never taxed for speech.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    to become a pimp
    Or deal in fake jewelry or ruin a fine tenor voice
    For effects that bring down the house could happen to all
    But the best and the worst of us . . .
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
