Famous quotes containing the word hold:

    The years of imprisonment hardened me.... Perhaps if you have been given a moment to hold back and wait for the next blow, your emotions wouldn’t be blunted as they have been in my case. When it happens every day of your life, when that pain becomes a way of life, I no longer have the emotion of fear. ... there is no longer anything I can fear. There is nothing the government has not done to me. There isn’t any pain I haven’t known.
    Winnie Mandela (b. 1936)

    I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    I hold that gentleman to be the best-dressed whose dress no one observes.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
