Famous quotes containing the word slander:

    If thou dost slander her and torture me,
    Never pray more; abandon all remorse;
    On horror’s head horrors accumulate;
    Do deeds to make heaven weep, all earth amazed;
    For nothing canst thou to damnation add
    Greater than that.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We slander the hyena; man is the fiercest and cruelest animal.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The slanders poured down like Niagara. If you take into consideration the setting—the war and the revolution—and the character of the accused—revolutionary leaders of millions who were conducting their party to the sovereign power—you can say without exaggeration that July 1917 was the month of the most gigantic slander in world history.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)
