Famous quotes containing the words foot and/or square:

    Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor s house, otherwise the neighbor will become weary of you and hate you.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 25:17.

    If magistrates had true justice, and if physicians had the true art of healing, they would have no occasion for square caps; the majesty of these sciences would of itself be venerable enough. But having only imaginary knowledge, they must employ those silly tools that strike the imagination with which they have to deal; and thereby, in fact, they inspire respect.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
