Famous quotes containing the words authority and/or highway:
“The members of a body-politic call it the state when it is passive, the sovereign when it is active, and a power when they compare it with others of its kind. Collectively they use the title people, and they refer to one another individually as citizens when speaking of their participation in the authority of the sovereign, and as subjects when speaking of their subordination to the laws of the state.”
—Jean-Jacques Rousseau (17121778)
“My manner is the footnote to your immoral
Beauty, that leads me with a magic hair
Up the spun highway of a vanishing hill
—Allen Tate (18991979)
