Famous quotes containing the word agreement:

    There’s nothing is this world more instinctively abhorrent to me than finding myself in agreement with my fellow-humans.
    Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990)

    Culture is the tacit agreement to let the means of subsistence disappear behind the purpose of existence. Civilization is the subordination of the latter to the former.
    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)

    No one can doubt, that the convention for the distinction of property, and for the stability of possession, is of all circumstances the most necessary to the establishment of human society, and that after the agreement for the fixing and observing of this rule, there remains little or nothing to be done towards settling a perfect harmony and concord.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
