Famous quotes containing the word crush:

    By measuring individual human worth, the novelist reveals the full enormity of the State’s crime when it sets out to crush that individuality.
    Ian McEwan (b. 1938)

    If you do not understand a man you cannot crush him. And if you do understand him, very probably you will not.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Man is but a reed, the feeblest one in nature; but he is a thinking reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him—a vapor, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But if the universe were to crush him, man would still be nobler than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
