Famous quotes containing the word infected:

    Bourgeois society is infected by monomania: the monomania of accounting. For it, the only thing that has value is what can be counted in francs and centimes. It never hesitates to sacrifice human life to figures which look well on paper, such as national budgets or industrial balance sheets.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    O, it comes o’er my memory
    As doth the raven o’er the infected house,
    Boding to all!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Religious literature has eminent examples, and if we run over our private list of poets, critics, philanthropists and philosophers, we shall find them infected with this dropsy and elephantiasis, which we ought to have tapped.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
