Famous quotes containing the words forces, relative and/or strength:

    Is there something in trade that dessicates and flattens out, that turns men into dried leaves at the age of forty? Certainly there is. It is not due to trade but to intensity of self- seeking, combined with narrowness of occupation.... Business has destroyed the very knowledge in us of all other natural forces except business.
    John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)

    The ungentlemanly expressions and gasconading conduct of yours relative to me yesterday was in true character of yourself and unmask you to the world and plainly show that they were ebullitions of a base mind ... and flow from a source devoid of every refined sentiment or delicate sensations.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Martin Amis (b. 1949)
