Famous quotes containing the words town, ugliest and/or girl:

    Hark, what good sport is out of town today.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.... A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their own free choice—is often the means of their regeneration.
    John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)

    We say that a girl with her doll anticipates the mother. It is more true, perhaps, that most mothers are still but children with playthings.
    —F.H. (Francis Herbert)
