Famous quotes containing the words company, heavy and/or artillery:

    The company of women of fashion will improve your manners, though not your understanding; and that complaisance and politeness, which are so useful in men’s company, can only be acquired in women’s.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    A heavy summons lies like lead upon me,
    And yet I would not sleep.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We now demand the light artillery of the intellect; we need the curt, the condensed, the pointed, the readily diffused—in place of the verbose, the detailed, the voluminous, the inaccessible. On the other hand, the lightness of the artillery should not degenerate into pop-gunnery—by which term we may designate the character of the greater portion of the newspaper press—their sole legitimate object being the discussion of ephemeral matters in an ephemeral manner.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)
