Famous quotes containing the word bits:
“What in fact have I achieved, however much it may seem? Bits and pieces ... trivialities. But here they wont tolerate anything else, or anything more. If I wanted to take one step in advance of the current views and opinions of the day, that would put paid to any power I have. Do you know what we are ... those of us who count as pillars of society? We are societys tools, neither more nor less.”
—Henrik Ibsen (18281906)
