Famous quotes containing the words leonard cohen, cohen and/or leonard:

    Let judges secretly despair of justice: their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith: their compassion will be true.
    Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)

    What is most original in a man’s nature is often that which is most desperate. Thus new systems are forced on the world by men who simply cannot bear the pain of living with what is. Creators care nothing for their systems except that they be unique. If Hitler had been born in Nazi Germany he wouldn’t have been content to enjoy the atmosphere.
    —Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)

    The purpose of population is not ultimately peopling earth. It is to fill heaven.
    —Graham D. Leonard (b. 1921)
