Famous quotes containing the word affected:

    Isadora Duncan (1878–1927)

It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession.

    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    He is not affected by the reality of distress touching his heart, but by the showy resemblance of it striking his imagination. He pities the plumage, but forgets the dying bird.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)
