Famous quotes containing the words keith and/or lamb:

    You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revolution.
    —Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    The lion shall never lie down with the lamb. The lion eternally shall devour the lamb, the lamb eternally shall be devoured. Man knows the great consummation in the flesh, the sensual ecstasy, and that is eternal. Also the spiritual ecstasy of unanimity, that is eternal. But the two are separate and never to be confused.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
