Famous quotes containing the word speedily:

    Nature avenges herself speedily on the hard pedantry that would chain her waves. She is no literalist. Every thing must be taken genially, and we must be at the top of our condition, to understand any thing rightly.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A strange effect of marriage, such as the nineteenth century has made it! The boredom of married life inevitably destroys love, when love has preceded marriage. And yet, as a philosopher has observed, it speedily brings about, among people who are rich enough not to have to work, an intense boredom with all quiet forms of enjoyment. And it is only dried up hearts, among women, that it does not predispose to love.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    I’ve never laid a cane on the back of a lord before, but if you force me to I shall speedily become used to the practice.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
