Famous quotes containing the words durant and/or louis:

    Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.
    —Will Durant (1885–1981)

    The friendly cow, all red and white,
    I love with all my heart:
    She gives me cream with all her might,
    To eat with apple tart.
    —Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
