Famous quotes containing the words john and/or stuart:

    Oh for some honest lover’s ghost,
    Some kind unbodied post
    Sent from the shades below!
    I strangely long to know
    Whether the nobler chaplets wear
    Those that their mistress’ scorn did bear,
    Or those that were used kindly.
    —Sir John Suckling (1609–1642)

    As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.
    —John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)
