Famous quotes containing the words attack and/or semantic:

    It is well worth the efforts of a lifetime to have attained knowledge which justifies an attack on the root of all evil—viz. the deadly atheism which asserts that because forms of evil have always existed in society, therefore they must always exist; and that the attainment of a high ideal is a hopeless chimera.
    Elizabeth Blackwell (1821–1910)

    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
