Famous quotes containing the words chains and/or side:

    Of all men living [priests] are our greatest enemies. If it were possible, they would extinguish the very light of nature, turn the world into a dungeon, and keep mankind for ever in chains and darkness.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)

    But to most of us society shows not its face and eye, but its side and back. To stand in true relations with men in a false age is worth a fit of insanity, is it not?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
